{from my kitchen} baked french toast with orange and vanilla

baked french toast

There are dishes I make that I enjoy while they last. Then there are dishes I make and I obsessively think about long after they are gone. This baked French toast scented with orange and vanilla falls into the latter category. It was all perfection, rich and custardy with just a touch of sweetness. The orange and vanilla subtly conspired to remind me of a creamsicle, one of my favorite summertime treats from childhood. Dusted with some confectioner’s sugar and served with a side of maple-sage sausage it was a lovely Sunday brunch.
