This was really good. For the liqueur, I used Gran Gala (I think the citrus flavor is a little more flavorful than other orange liqueurs). I used a little maple syrup but mainly let the dusting of powdered sugar on top be the main sweetener. It was such a great breakfast for the two us. My husband doesn't normally care for French Toast either, but he really liked this recipe. Thanks, ForeverMama.
