Saturdays. They’re my favorite. Especially the morning time. Sunlight floods our bedroom, and blankets everything in sight.
Then coffee. Coffee and tea begin the start to a lovely morning. Recently, we’ve been enjoying challah bread. It’s a traditional Jewish bread made from eggs. We particularly like its light and fluffy texture. Perfect toasted with a favorite jam. Then, one day the idea struck me to make French toast with our new favorite bread.
And so began a new Saturday morning tradition.
A favorite record is spinning and the kitchen begins to smell like a small, downtown cafe.
Here’s my recipe for fluffy, flavorful, and delightfully sweet–challah bread French toast.
Challah Bread French Toast
- 4 slices of challah bread (raisin challah is also a delicious option)
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup of milk (we use almond milk)
- 2 TB sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 TB butter
- Slice challah bread in 1 inch pieces.
- In a medium sized bowl, beat eggs.
- Combine milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon with the eggs.
- Melt butter in large pan.
- Quickly place challah in egg mixture, coating each side.
- Place coated bread slices in the pan and brown each side.
- Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit.
I hope this sweet little recipe becomes a new part of your morning routine.
