  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Maple syrup;

  2. 2. Cut the loaf into 1 inch thick slices and halve each slice on the diagonal.
  3. 3. Cut in the diagonal side of each piece of bread to form a pocket (this is almost like cutting the bread into 1/2" slices except you don't go through any of the other sides of the bread).

  9. 9. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  10. 10. Sprinkle bread with 1 tbsp sugar.
  11. 11. Bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  12. 12. maple syrup, 1/2 c sugar, 1/2 c orange juice and 1 tsp vanilla in a pot.

  14. 14. Toast the pecan pieces or halves while baking french toast.
  15. 15. Cool sauce and serve with toast. Should be prepared ahead of baking to allow for cooling.
