• 8-12 slices of day-old baguette or other bread (the harder the better)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 TS lemon zest
  • 1 TS orange zest
  • 1 TS lemon juice
  • 1 TS orange juice
  • 1 TS ground cinnamon
  • 1 TB rum
  • 1/2 TS ground nutmeg
  • 1 TS vanilla
  • 1/2 TS salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 4-5 TB olive oil


In a medium sauce-pan, bring the milk, sugar, lemon and orange zest and juice, rum, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and salt to a slow boil stirring occasionally. Reduce to medium-low heat and cook for about 10 minutes letting the flavours infuse into the milk.

Let the milk mixture cool slightly and then pour it over the bread slices in a bowl. Let the bread soak up the mixture until saturated.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Once hot, dip both sides of each saturated slice in the beaten eggs and then put in the hot oil. Fry until both sides are golden brown and then remove onto a paper towel to soak the oil.

Dust with some powdered sugar and enjoy. Can be served hot or cold.

Culinary regards and Enjoy it!
