 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6                    Eggs, slightly beaten
      1/2   pt           (1 cup) whipping cream
    1       c            Orange juice
    1                    To 1 1/2 ounces Orange
    1                    Loaf French Bread
                         Butter, margarine or cooking
                         Powdered sugar
   *  Mix eggs, whipping cream and orange juice.  Then
   add liqueur to taste. Pour into large casserole or
   glass baking dish.
   Remove ends from the bread and cut loaf into 12-15
   slices, each about 3/4 thick.  Place slices in egg
   mixture and let stand for a few minutes to absorb some
   of the liquid; then turn so the other side of the
   bread can absorb some of the mixture. Cover tightly
   with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you are ready
   to prepare the French Toast.  Some cooks soak the
   bread in the egg mixture overnight, refrigerated so
   that it becomes almost custardlike in texture.
   Preheat heavy skillet or electric griddle to 325-350
   degrees. Melt butter, margarine or place oil in
   skillet.  Place four or five slices in to cook, but do
   not crowd.  Cook on one side until golden brown, turn
   and cook on the other side.  Remove and keep warm
   while you cook remaining slices, adding more oil or
   butter as needed. Place toast on serving plates and
   dust with powered sugar.  Garnish with fresh fruit, if
   desired, and serve with honey, jam or syrup of your
   choice.  Yields 4-5 Serv.
