If you want a quick and fairly simple breakfast, here ya go. I just made this about 15 mins ago, and I have to say that it's wonderful!

What you will need:

Simple Syrup:

1 Orange (juice and peel)
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
1/4 cup of water

French Toast:

Bread (preferably a couple of days old)
1 egg
Milk (eyeball it, I would say 1/2 cup, at most)
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon (more or less for taste)
1 Tablespoon Sugar (more or less to taste, don't go overboard though)
1 Tablespoon of Pure Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon of butter

What to do:

Take a microplane(found at any culinary store, or hardware store) and take the peel off the orange, down to the white pit. Take only the peel, as the pit is bitter. Slice said orange in half, and juice it. Place peel in bowl and strain juice into bowl, with seive. You do not want pulp or seeds.

In a medium sauce pan, over medium-low heat, combine 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water, to make a simple syrup. Allow to come to boil, stirringly occassionally. Once brought to a boil, add orange juice and peel from bowl. Bring back to a simmer.

Combine in a small glass, 1 tablespoon of corn starch and 1/4 cup of water. Stir until dissolved. You will be left with a milky white liquid. After the sauce in pan is brought back to a simmer, add slurry mix (starch/water) and bring to a boil, stirringly constantly. *This will thicken our orange syrup, and the slurry will not become fully effective until it reaches a boil*

Allow syrup mix to boil 5 minutes, until it is as thick as it will become. *The syrup will thicken slightly more while cooling*

In a flat glass dish, break open the egg, and combine with 1/2 cup of milk (again, eyeball it), cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla extract. *ou could also add some freshly ground nutmeg, but a little of this goes a long way* Combine all ingredients until smooth.

Begin to melt butter in a large frying pan. Mine is square, so I can get 4 in there at one time. One butter is melted, dredge bread through egg wash mix, and set into frying pan. Allow to fry until each side is golden brown and the egg is fully cooked in the bread.

While cooking the bread, stir the syrup every once in a while, to allow excess heat to escape.

Once bread is fully cooked and golden brown, stack bread in 3-4 layers, depending on person eating, and cover with the orange syrup. *You can brush French Toast with butter for more flavor*

Voila! You have homemade French Toast with Orange Glaze.

Bon apetite!
