Orange French Toast

This is a recipe of Nigella Lawson's. It is in no way healthy but lovely for a weekend treat!

Orange French Toast
Serves: 2


2 egg replacers
Grated zest of 1 orange
Juice of 1 orange
60ml non-dairy milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large, thick slices white bread or 4 smaller slices
75g marmalade
50g caster sugar (I used evaporated cane juice)
1tbls vegan margarine


Whisk the egg replacers, orange zest, milk and ground cinnamon in a wide shallow dish.
Soak the bread slices in this mixture for 2 minutes a side.
While the bread is soaking, bring the orange juice, marmalade and sugar to the boil in a saucepan, then turn down the heat to a fast simmer for 3-4 minutes.
Pour into serving jug.

Heat the butter in a heavy-based frying pan and cook the bread for about 2 minutes a side over a medium heat until golden.
Serve the French toast with some of the amber syrup poured over each slice, and a jug of extra syrup on the side. I served with orange pekoe tea...yummy!
