No-Fry French Toast



  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 slightly beaten egg
  • 1 slightly beaten egg white
  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 8- 1/2-inch slices French bread
  • 1/4 tsp. finely shredded orange peel
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 T. sifted powdered sugar (optional)


Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside. In a pie plate combine egg, egg white, milk, vanilla, and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Soak the bread slices in egg mixture about 1 minute on each side. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake in a 450° oven about 6 minutes or until bread is lightly browned. Turn bread; bake for 5 to 8 minutes more or until golden brown. Meanwhile, for orange syrup, in small saucepan stir together orange peel, orange juice, honey, cornstarch, and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. If desired, sprinkle French toast with powdered sugar. Serve toast with orange syrup.
Baking French toast makes it lower in fat, but it?s also much easier for the cook because it all bakes at once. And the homemade orange-cinnamon syrup is lower in sugar than regular purchased syrups.
