We have an extra special In The Kitchen feature today! Wit & Delight is being featured on Glitter Guide TODAY, and as part of the feature, we made a really delicious breakfast to share with you and GG readers. It’s exciting to share a little glimps into my life & home, captured by my talented and lovely friend Melissa Oholendt.
As many of you know, I have a deep passion of breakfast foods. We stepped it up a notch for Glitter Guide, because it is Glitter Guide after all! This is an over-the-top indulgent breakfast for anyone who’s got a bit of sweet tooth, perfect for breakfast in bed for your loved one. Served with a side of ice cream, this french toast breakfast makes the whole kitchen smell like a dream. Don’t forget to add coffee & freshly squeeze OJ!
French Toast with Orange Zest + Ice Cream
3/4 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
1 Tbs. sugar
2 tsp. grated orange zest
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt
2 tsp. unsalted butter
8 slices day-old Texas Toast
1 cup black berries
1 pint of Dulce De Leche
Good coffe grounds
Crack eggs into a shallow dish and beat until blended. Add cream, orange juice, orange zest, sugar, vanilla, & salt. Place bread in a casserole dish and pour the batter on top. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Prepare the griddle on medium-high heat. Coat griddle with butter and place toast on the griddle until brown. Flip and repeat. Serve with warm real maple syrup & top with blackberries.
I love serving my french toast with a side of ice cream. If you’re feeling really wild, just plop a scoop on top of the french toast. Or serve in a small bowl. I’d highly recommend you top your ice cream (I recommend Dulce De Leche) with coffee grounds. Talk about YUM.
