Cinnamon Breakfast Toast with Orange-Rum Syrup

4.5 14 Recipe Reviews | Rate this Recipe | 78 Saves
This Cinnamon Breakfast Toast will become a family favorite! Oranges and rum are produced in Venezuela, so it makes sense that this version of French toast is served with scrumptious syrup flavored with these local gems. Cinnamon also infuses both the egg mixture and syrup. Serve with fresh orange slices for a special touch.
