Recipe by Jake Cohen @jakecohen
In a large bowl, whisk together milk, ½ cup golden sugar, orange zest, salt, cardamom and eggs until smooth and the Domino® Golden Sugar has dissolved.
Layer the challah in a large baking dish. Pour the egg mixture over the challah, flipping the pieces to make sure each one is coating. Let soak for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the creme fraiche and orange juice with the remaining 1 tablespoon of golden sugar, then set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add 2 to 3 pieces of challah and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
Flip each piece, then add another tablespoon of butter to the pan. Cook until the other side is golden, then transfer to a platter. Repeat this process until all the French toast is cooked.
Divide the French toast between plates and garnish with orange creme fraiche. Serve immediately with tons of syrup!
