Ingredients

Non-stick cooking spray
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 egg white, slightly beaten
3/4 cup fat-free milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 slices French bread, 1/2 inch thick each
1/4 teaspoon finely grated orange peel
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon sifted powdered sugar (optional)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray, set aside. In a pie plate combine egg, egg white, milk, vanilla and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Soak 2 bread slices at a time in egg mixture, about a minute on each side. Place soaked bread slices on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 6 to 7 minutes or until bread is lightly browned. Turn each slice and bake 5 to 8 minutes more or until golden brown. To make orange syrup, in a small saucepan stir together orange peel, orange juice, honey, cornstarch and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Plate French toast, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with warm orange syrup.
