  1. In a large bowl, beat eggs, salt, and sugar until frothy. Add milk, orange flower water and orange rind, mix until combined.
  2. Place bread in a shallow baking pan. Pour egg mixture over bread; let soak for 1/2 hour.
  3. In a heavy skillet, melt shortening. Fry bread 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and keep warm.
  4. Serve either with powdered sugar or your favorite syrup.
  5. * Some people prefer the bread with the crusts removed.
  6. I thinks the crust is the best part.
