Grand Marnier-Infused French Toast is one of those luxuries I love to make once or twice a year for brunch or special occasions. It’s rich, decadent and quite lovely. If you like a subtle hint of orange flavor and cinnamon and are a fan of this liqueur, then give it a shot.
Tips & Tricks for Grand Marnier-Infused French Toast
This is an easy recipe that expands upon basic French toast. I’ll share a few things I’ve discovered while working with this recipe that makes it fabulous.
While you can get away with using commercial off the shelf sliced bread, I highly recommend a sweeter, bakery-style variety. I used challah bread for this particular recipe.
Try to find brioche or another type of bread that you can slice yourself with a bread knife.
You can make the recipe without alcohol by removing the alcohol and adding another tablespoon of orange zest. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of alcohol-free rum extract. It won’t be quite the same, but it will be close.
For a richer, more custard-like flavor, add 3-4 additional egg yolks to the batter.
Powdered sugar, syrup, orange marmalade, and fresh fruit toppings works well with this type of French toast.
