    Serves: 4 

    • 8 slices white bread
    • 2 eggs
    • 60ml thickened cream
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon orange zest
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3 tablespoons (45g) butter

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Place a slice of bread on a cutting board. Align a star-shaped cutter in the centre of the slice. Push the cutter through the bread, then remove excess bread outside the cutter. Hold the cutter down on the bread during this step to prevent the star from tearing. Gently remove the star from the cutter and repeat on all slices of bread.
    2. In a medium bowl beat together eggs, cream, honey, salt, cinnamon, orange zest and vanilla.
    3. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium high heat.
    4. Dip both sides of the stars in the egg mixture and carefully transfer to the hot pan. Brown on both sides and transfer to a warm plate while remaining stars cook. Serve hot.

    This was fabulous. I was soo bored with the same old french toast. Don't be scared by the amount of honey, I started out with only 1 tbsp and after the first slice quickly added the other tbsp. They were not too sweet at all. I used light bread and half&half instead of heavy cream. They came out great. You have to cook them at a low heat because of all the honey or they will burn quickly. Definitely a keeper.  -  23 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The kids and I liked this alright. My kids found more greatness in the french toast being that they were shaped as stars. I liked that they ate their breakfast without complaint. I might keep the star idea for next time and use a different french toast dip.  -  30 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wow! We just finished eating this for dinner and I must say that this was by far THE BEST French toast I have ever eaten! Our sons are huge Batman fans so I used a bat-shaped cookie cutter instead of a star and they loved it! For bread I used Best Bread Machine Bread from this site, it had just come out of the bread maker and worked out wonderfully for this recipe. I don't know if it's the difference in using heavy cream in place of milk as in traditional recipes, or the addition of honey, it just was a terrific recipe-unlike any I had ever had before. Thanks so much for sharing, I can attest that this will be our permanent French Toast recipe from here on out!  -  04 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
