Challah French Toast

I met up with my girlfriend Laura at the Highlands Bakery today for brunch. We shared some Challah French Toast and Scrambled Eggs with Cheese. It was so delicious!! So delicious I bought some of their Challah Bread so I can duplicate it at home for Linner (Lunch/Dinner).

French Toast Batter

3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 cup half-and-half
1 T sugar
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t vanilla bean paste
pinch of kosher salt

Challah French Toast
4 1-inch slices of Challah Bread
4 T unsalted butter
Maple syrup
vanilla powdered sugar

To prepare the batter, whisk the eggs, milk, half-and-half, cinnamon, vanilla bean paste and salt. Transfer to a broad, shallow bowl and set aside.

To prepare the French toast, lay a piece of the bread in the batter and let it soak for 1-2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. When the butter is melted, lift the bread from the batter, let the excess drip off, and cook for about 4 minutes on each side, or until lately browned and cooked through.

Transfer to a serving plate and top with a drizzle of syrup and a sprinkling of vanilla powdered sugar.


  1. This is making my mouth water!!!!

  2. This looks amazing, challa was meant for making the best french toast!

  3. Would you be interested in sharing it with my readers next month. Here is some more info

    I will be doing a 30 day food challenge. I will not be cooking the same thing twice the entire month.

    I am looking for bloggers that want to contribute. Each day I would like to have a guest contributor for a entree, a dessert, and a side dish. That is a ton of people that I am going to require. So if you would like to participate please email me at boblyns at yahoo dot com and I will get the details.

    This will be really simple for those that already have recipes posted on their blog because I would just need the html for your post you have already published. Then I will edit it a little to get it to be uniform on my blog with all the rest of the recipes and voila you are getting some promotions :)

    Also currently I am not limiting the number of recipes I get. As I get more submissions then I will be more picky.

    I hope some of you would like to submit some recipes to me. I can't wait to see what you have in store

    my blog is
