· 2 large eggs

· 1 orange, zested

· 60ml full fat milk

· ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

· 2 large, thick slices of white bread

· 1 orange, juiced

· 75gm marmalade

· 50gm caster sugar

· 1tbsp butter


Whisk the eggs, orange zest, milk and ground cinnamon in a wide shallow dish and soak the bread slices in this mixture for two minutes on each side. While the bread is soaking, bring the orange juice, marmalade and sugar to a boil in a saucepan then turn down the heat to a fast simmer for three to four minutes. If you need to, let this syrup stand while you cook the bread. Heat the butter in a heavy-based frying pan and cook the soaked bread for about two minutes on each side over medium heat until golden in colour. Serve the French toast with some syrup poured over each slice and a jug of extra syrup on the side.
