To make Ina Garten's baked French toast, slice 1 challah loaf into 3/4-inch-thick slices, and layer the pieces inside the baking dish. Mix 8 extra-large eggs with 5 cups of half-and-half and 3 tablespoons of honey in a bowl. Incorporate 1 tablespoon of orange zest, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Drench the bread with this liquid mixture, and position the baking dish in a 1-inch water bath in a roasting pan.
Wrap aluminum foil over the top, and poke two holes to facilitate ventilation. Bake the mixture at 350 F for 45 minutes. Discard the foil, and bake the pudding for another 40 minutes or until it is firm and puffy. Serve it with powdered sugar and maple syrup.Learn more about Cooking
