Yield Serves 8
To keep the cooked French toast slices warm while you're making more, place them on a baking sheet in a 300° oven. That way everyone can sit down and eat breakfast at the same time.


  • 2 cups pancake mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange zest
  • 4 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 16 slices white sandwich bread
  • Maple syrup

How to Make It
