French toast is said to have been created as a way to salvage bread that was otherwise too stale to eat, but nowadays french toast is something you make for its own sake. Because it’s delicious. Really delicious. But even a french toast can use a little variety from time to time, and we love to experiment with interesting flavors. That’s why we love this french toast with oranges and sour cream. The sour cream lends a pleasant tang that contrasts nicely with the maple syrup, while the hint of orange adds fragrance and brightness to the mix. And the best part? Even with all these harmonious and wonderful flavors, this french toast recipe is still a cinch to make.
