It’s always useful to have a go-to French toast recipe in your brunch repertoire. This simple recipe is quick, easy and yields golden brown crunchy French toast every time. The orange zest gives it a bright citrus kick. Feel free to swap the white bread out for challah or whichever bread you prefer. Just be sure that it’s soft and porous, so it will absorb the batter. We serve our French toast soaked in maple syrup and with berries on top.

But first, here’s how easy it is to make (especially for a hungry crowd).
