    I recently had a wonderful restaurant breakfast of french toast topped with orange sauce and almonds. I'm hoping this recipe will allow me to recreate it. Thank you for sharing! (The restaurant was Hattie's in Castle Rock, WA)

    " It was excellent "
    linebb956 ate it and said...
    Did a test on this today... It is awesome.. I could eat it with a spoon! It is going in my cake! I'm putting it in the chocolate.. but I could see it in a white or yellow cake with whipped cream frosting... and mandarin oranges on top! Oh yeah! A summer treat!
    This is a winner and needs more than a 5
