  1. Combine milk, crème fraîche, sugar, cinnamon, and orange zest in saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir frequently and watch mixture carefully. Once it comes to a boil, turn off heat and allow mixture to cool
  2. Place bread into a shallow pan or cookie sheet with a lip
  3. Once milk mixture is lukewarm, pour it over bread. Allow bread to soak up milk mixture. If bread is really hard, you can leave it in mixture for a few minutes. You don't want the bread to be so soggy that it falls apart
  4. Heat 1/2-inch of olive oil in frying pan over medium-high heat until it's very hot
  5. Lightly beat 6 eggs in shallow bowl
  6. Working in batches, take each piece of bread from milk mixture and dip it into beaten eggs. Place into pan. Cook to golden brown; flip and fry the other side until golden
  7. Place cooked french toast on paper towels and continue the frying process in batches until you've used all the bread
  8. Stack your toast on a plate and layer with crème fraîche and berries. Drench the stack with maple syrup.
