French Toast with Caramelized Cinnamon Orange Sugar {quick & easy!}

french toast with caramelized cinnamon orange sugar and marmalade syrup

I am so thankful for oranges and other citrus during the winter months, when our local fresh fruit supply is nonexistent here in the Midwest. It’s bright and cheery, and offers incredible flavor and color on our plates when the snow is falling cold and white outside. In both sweet (Orange and Dark Chocolate Scones with Orange Glaze) and savory (Roasted Cauliflower with Golden Raisins, Pine Nuts & Orange) dishes, my family has been enjoying the beauty of citrus this season.

I’ve been known to stir in the fragrant juice and zest of an orange into our pancake and French toast batters in the past, and those breakfasts have always gone over big for our family. So this past weekend, this concept was given a little different twist. I added orange zest to a cinnamon and sugar mixture, topped slices of French toast with it, and then cooked it until that citrusy sugar was all golden and caramelized and completely irresistible. Drizzled with a simple orange marmalade syrup, all warm and sticky, this French Toast with Caramelized Cinnamon Sugar proved to be another delicious hit. And it was so quick and easy to make!

french toast with caramelized cinnamon orange sugar and marmalade syrup

With the new French Toast Batter from Crystal Farms (a company based right here in the Midwest), I had a hot and delicious breakfast sitting in front of my family in record time. The batter is made with eggs, vanilla, and milk, and comes in a handy carton with a spout. It’s so quick and easy to use, that I actually found myself making the kids orange French toast on a hectic Monday morning, before I headed into work and our kids were off to school. I had saved the leftover cinnamon orange sugar and marmalade syrup from our weekend meal, and it helped to make Monday morning so much easier to step in to with a smile on.

new Crystal Farms eggs products

Crystal Farms has also debuted two other new egg products. Simply Eggs can stand in for shell eggs in any baking or cooking recipe. And Scrambled Eggs has some buttermilk added to it, providing beautifully fluffy eggs every time. My husband and I are very much an eggs-for-breakfast-or-any-meal-of-the-day kind of couple, and we both found these products to be tasty and incredibly easy to use. It took only a few minutes to prepare a quick protein-rich weekday breakfast. And with a little more leisure time over the weekend, we indulged our hot skillet of eggs with some freshly chopped veggies and herbs, and a sprinkling of cheese. After making it through another week, an extra special weekend breakfast is always the perfect reward.

french toast with caramelized cinnamon orange sugar and marmalade syrup

And now here’s that quick and easy recipe for
French Toast with Caramelized Cinnamon Orange Sugar.


French Toast with Caramelized Cinnamon Orange Sugar {quick & easy!}


    for the cinnamon orange sugar:
  • 1/3 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • zest from 1 large orange
  • for the orange marmalade syrup (optional):
  • 1 c. maple syrup
  • 1/4 c. orange marmalade
  • for the French toast:
  • Crystal Farms French Toast Batter
  • your favorite bread, sliced (French bread or challah make this extra special!)
  • butter, for the heated pan or griddle


Please note: This is not an exact recipe. Just make as little or as much as you want each time. The cinnamon orange sugar and the orange marmalade syrup keep well in the refrigerator, for future quick and easy meals.

Prepare cinnamon orange sugar by stirring together all ingredients. Set aside.

Prepare orange marmalade syrup by combining maple syrup and orange marmalade in a small bowl or pitcher. Warm just a bit in the microwave.

Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Melt a bit of butter in the pan. Pour desired amount of French Toast Batter in a shallow bowl, and then dip first bread slice in it. Turn bread over in the batter and then, while still dipped in the batter, place up to 2 teaspoons of cinnamon orange sugar on the top side of the bread. Spread to evenly coat that side of the bread. Then place the bread on the buttered pan, with the cinnamon orange sugar side down first. After the sugar has caramelized and turned golden, about 2 minutes or so, flip the bread and cook until done, another couple of minutes. Repeat process with remaining bread slices. Serve with warm orange marmalade syrup, maple syrup, or fresh fruit.

    A granola bar and a banana works if we’re running out the door. If we have more time, oatmeal or cereal with some fruit.

    Rebecca — February 19, 2013 at 11:03 am

    Omelets are my favorite easy breakfast. Just toss in some fresh veggies and it makes a delicious meal! I also pre-pack bags of smoothie ingredients and freeze them so all I have to do in the morning is take one out and blend it up! It’s a quick and easy breakfast and a great way to get my fruits and veggies in!

    I’m afraid to say what we have for breakfast. My son won’t eat oatmeal, doesn’t like cereal very much, and mom is not a morning person. You can see where this is leading. Fridays, at least, we have a tradition of scrambled eggs and a couple Hostess chocolate doughnuts. This “instant” French toast batter will be a wonderful option for our breakfasts. Thank you!

    Cassie | Bake Your Day — February 19, 2013 at 12:06 pm

    This is a great idea! I love a quick breakfast solution. I usually end up grabbing a hard boiled egg or a banana. I’d much rather have French toast!

  23. #
    Donna — February 19, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Honestly I usually grab a low-fat cheese stick and a cup of Greek yogurt and a piece of fruit for a mid-morning snack and off I go to work.

    But I LOVE french toast and yours looked awesome!!

  24. #
    Anne — February 19, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    I don’t have time to make waffles for breakfast, so I make them later in the day and refrigerate them. Then, on subsequent mornings, it only takes a few minutes to warm them up in the toaster oven (right on the rack, to keep them crisp).

    My favorite breakfast item recently is crockpot steelcut oatmeal made with eggnog and dried cranberries and flax seed or chia seed. Yummy 1st morning and then I package the left overs for next few days in refrig or freezer. Warms up well.

    Prior to that Sargento’s Monterey Jack and jalapeño cheese sticks and fruit.

    I also like leftovers from dinners. :)

    Or fruit smoothies with fatfree vanilla Greek yogurt.

    Amy Tong — February 20, 2013 at 12:31 am

    My favorite busy morning breakfast solution used to be making a batch of breakfast cookies the night before. It’s all healthy ingredients and my kids love them because they are eating cookies for breakfast. But I think I’ll have to try your French Toast with Caramelized cinnamon and orange sugar. My kids love French Toast and I make them all the time on weekends. The Crystal Farm French Toast Batter would make my life much easier. It’s always nice to have a hot breakfast before school especially in winter time. :)

  94. #

    Cereal with yogurt and fruit is our “in a super hurry” breakfast. Add cereal to bowl, add enough yogurt to make it moist and then add cut up bananas, strawberries or what ever fruit that is on hand.

    I make breakfast burritos and freeze them. When I’m in a rush or running late, I pop one in the microwave and I have a delicious breakfast in seconds!

    Love to do quick cold oatmeal – oats yogurt milk & fruit overnight in the fridge. I’ll make a few batches & keep them in the fridge for a busy week. Perfect in the summer!

    I love mixing up protein pancake batter with eggs at night and cooking them in the morning. Serve with fruit and/or syrup.

    Our busy morning solution when we don’t have time to cook is yogurt (usually greek) with mix-ins. Granola, cereal, fruit, chia seeds, whatever we are in the mood for that day.

    We like to have scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese in a whole wheat pita pocket.

    I like a frittata — essentially an open-face omelet cooked in the oven.

    I like to cut up some fresh avocado and cherry tomatoes and keep them on hand in the fridge. Then for breakfast I scramble up and egg and add in the veggies and some feta cheese. If I’m in a big hurry I throw it all in a tortilla and out the door I go.

    My busy-morning breakfast is a yogurt with fresh berries and granola. Protein, carbs, fat and fiber, all in one!
