The Hudspeth House B&B Orange French Toast

Nestled in the heart of Canyon, Texas, The Hudspeth House Bed and Breakfast stands as a charming haven, inviting guests to experience its warm hospitality and delectable morning delights. Among its celebrated breakfast offerings is the famed Orange French Toast, a dish that leaves a lasting impression on every guest.

With its unique blend of citrusy zest and comforting sweetness, this recipe has become a cherished staple at The Hudspeth House. What makes this French toast stand out is its harmonious fusion of flavors, where the tangy brightness of oranges meets the rich, creamy texture of a classic French toast.

I discovered that The Hudspeth House offered a cookbook containing all their coveted recipes, including the cherished Orange French Toast. Without hesitation, I acquired a copy, eager to replicate the flavors in the comfort of my own kitchen.

Since then, the Orange French Toast has become a beloved favorite in the Unger household. John and I take great joy in sharing this delightful creation with our guests. The aroma of freshly cooked French toast infused with the essence of oranges never fails to evoke a sense of comfort and anticipation.
