Calories 0


  • 3 small to medium slices honey whole wheat bread*
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk I used 1%
  • 1/4 cup orange juice I used reduced-sugar
  • 2 tbsp orange marmalade
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tbsp butter
  • powdered sugar optional
  • maple syrup optional


  • Add egg to a medium-sized bowl and whisk until egg white and yolk are well combined and fluffy. Add milk, orange juice, orange marmalade, vanilla extract, honey, and cinnamon and whisk until ingredients are combined. Place bread slices in a shallow dish and pour egg mixture over top of slices. Let sit for 3-4 minutes, then flip slices and let sit for another few minutes.
  • In a skillet placed over medium heat, add 3/4 tbsp butter and let it melt, swirling it around the pan. Place bread slices in skillet and pour excess egg mixture over top. Let slices cook until the bottom side is a nice golden brown, then flip and cook until other side is golden brown as well.
  • Remove from heat and (optionally) top with powdered sugar and/or maple syrup before serving.


*You can also use a dense bread like challah if you prefer. Promise the honey whole wheat is easy, though!
