Beautiful and classic Challah french toast with a hint of cinnamon. Served with seasonal berries and light dusting of powdered sugar.
- 1/2 loaf Challah bread
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar or honey
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
- Unsalted butter for cooking
In a large shallow dish, mix eggs, milk, sugar, salt and cinnamon.
Slice the Challah in about 3/4-inch thick slices.
Soak as many slices that can fit, about 1-2 minutes per side.
Heat a medium non-stick pan on medium heat and add about 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan. Let the butter melt and swirl it around the pan to cover.
Add the soaked Challah bread as soon as the butter melts. Cook about 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown on each side.
Fry the remaining soaked bread slices, adding more butter as needed until all slices have been cooked. Serve hot with a light dusting of powdered sugar, maple syrup, seasonal berries or preserves.
To reheat the toast, simply place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and put it in a 350 degrees F. oven for about 5 minutes.
