I could not be more excited about today’s post: an Orange Marmalade French Toast Bake!

But this isn’t a regular French Toast Bake. It’s topped with Bonne Maman’s Orange Marmalade Preserves, giving this brunch dish a glossy finish and a lovely sweet, floral aroma that might as well be straight out of an orange grove.

I was fortunate to travel to Paris last year with Bonne Maman, and if I was a Bonne Maman lover before the trip, I became a die-hard fan following it. We tried what must’ve been over fifteen preserves, jellies, and curds, met with some of their executives, and learned the in’s and out’s of the Bonne Maman brand.

One thing I just loved learning? Bonne Maman roughly translates to “grandmother,” which is very fitting considering their full line of products is made entirely with ingredients found in your (or your grandmother’s) kitchen. And Bonne Maman has never changed a recipe since the company’s founding 🙂

So yeah, I’m a Bonne Maman girl for life. Which is why I’m SO excited to bring you all today’s recipe; I truly believe in this company and am so impressed with both the ideals of the company and the products they put out into the world.

Alright Orange Marmalade French Toast Bake. Let’s chat about it. Easter is around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about your Easter Brunch spread.

And while regular French toast is delicious, it’s also time-consuming. Dipping each individual slice of bread into eggs, waiting for each piece to fry… when you’re putting together an entire brunch, no one’s got time for that!!

This French Toast Bake is so perfect because it combines the taste of French toast with the ease of a bread pudding. It uses two loaves of challah (brioche works great, too!), 10 eggs for that custard texture I just love, and is topped with Bonne Mamans Orange Marmalade Preserves for a unique presentation and phenomenal taste. And it’s SO springy!

I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of this recipe. It’s going to be the centerpiece of my Easter brunch spread, and I for one am already getting hungry thinking about it!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 10 eggs
  • 3 1/2 cups whole milk
  • zest of 2 large oranges
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 2 loaves of brioche bread
  • 1/2 jar Bonne Maman Orange Marmalade

Instructions

  • Butter or grease a 9 x 13 pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk the eggs, milk, orange zest, salt, and vanilla together until completely combined. If your brioche isn’t sliced yet, slice into 1 inch thick slices and then cut those in half into triangles. Arrange the bread in your prepared pan in 2 layer. Pour the egg mixture over the bread, making sure to coat every piece. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to let the egg mixture soak up.
  • 12 hours later, remove the french toast from the fridge and preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the french toast for about 40 minutes or until the egg mixture is almost set. While the french toast bakes heat Bonne Maman Orange Marmalade in a small sauce pan until it is warm but not bubbling. Take the french toast out of the oven, and use a pastry brush to brush the the top of the french toast, covering it in a thick layer. Place french toast back in the oven and bake for 10 more minutes. Allow to cool before slicing and serving. Enjoy!

This looks delicious. Just wondering how many people the original recipe will serve. I’m considering making it for 11-12 people.

Looks delicious and I have always loved Bon Maman preserves! Only question…should there be some sugar in the custard mixture, maybe 1/2 cup??
P.S. love your website and photography.

Hey Linda! Thank you so much for your kind words 🙂
We found the french toast was plenty sweet the buttery, sweet brioche and marmalade. Plus plenty of maple syrup. Duh.
If you did want to add some you certainly could though (we wouldn’t judge!)

Our Easter Sunday Brunch……wish you were here…..
cherry smoked ham, thick cut bacon, chicken breakfast sausage

Eggs, the way you like them Quiche, Omelets (for my omelets I add fresh grated Parmesan cheese as I whisk the eggs and as the omelet cooks it makes a nice brown crunchy surface as you roll up the Omelet)

And the piece de resistance Orange Marmalade French Toast

Hey I got a dollar off coupon too from your recipe for my next purchase of Bonne Maman preserve.

The best recipes are from Broma Bakery. This is no exception! My daughter and I put this together Saturday afternoon for Easter Sunday breakfast. We used a 24oz loaf of Hawaiian bread. It turned out perfectly beautiful! I’m talkin’ taste and appearance! My husband said “Didn’t we have this at the restaurant in Wisconsin?” Wow! With this recipe you can make restaurant quality French Toast at home! 5⭐️+! Thank you Broma Bakery!

Loved this recipe! I made it for Easter potluck breakfast at church and it was very well received! I ended up using the whole jar of jam because I knew we wouldn’t be serving it with syrup and it was perfect, just sweet enough and oh so tender (even after re-heating). So easy to make and so delicious and satisfying. I will definitely be making it again!

I made this for Easter yesterday and let me just say… it was Ah.Maz.Ing!!! I forgot to prep it the night before, so it only sat wrapped and refrigerated for about 2 hours in the morning before baking. It took closer to an hour to set in the oven, and I had to cover it with foil for the last 15 minutes so it didn’t get too dark. I used 1 entire loaf of Trader Joe’s Brioche bread, which fit my 13×9 Pyrex dish perfectly. I’m eating it right now as I type (reheated in the microwave the next day), and it’s still just as delicious. I will definitely be making this again!
