Gloria's French Toast--A Perfect Mother's Day Treat!

This recipe is simple enough for kids to help make for mom on Mother's Day morning. Make sure that all children (and adults) wash their hands thoroughly after handling raw eggs!

French Toast

The orange juice in the eggs makes this French Toast taste lighter than others.


  • 8 large slices plain/raisin challah- about ½ “ thick
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 6 tablespoons sweet butter
  • 2 large navel oranges-sliced or 2 cups mixed berries
  • ½ cup sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • optional: pure maple syrup


1. Beat eggs until foamy in a mixing bowl. Add orange juice and beat again.

2. Arrange challah slices in pan and pour beaten eggs over them. Shift pan back and forth until all slices are soaked on one side. Turn over challah slices and allow to soak in eggs 20 minutes longer.

3. Preheat oven to: 300 F.

4. Melt two tablespoons butter in skillet. Add two or three slices to skillet and cook until browned on one side. Turn slices over and brown them on the other side. Remove slices from skillet and place on serving platter. Keep warm in oven until all the French Toast has been prepared.

5. Pour out butter if it has begun to burn and add new butter to skillet. Cook remaining slices of challah and add to serving platter.

6. Serve French Toast with sliced oranges (or mixed berries) and cinnamon sugar.
