Soft and slightly sweet challah bread makes the best French toast as it crisps up on the edges but stays soft and almost custard-like in the center. Serve this with plenty of butter and maple syrup!

Ingredients

    • 1 large loaf challah bread
    • 8 large eggs
    • 2 cups whole milk
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • Butter for frying, plus more for serving
    • Maple syrup

Preparation

1. Slice the challah into 1-inch-thick slices.

2. In  a medium-shallow baking pan, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, salt and cinnamon. Working in batches, place a couple slices of the bread in the pan in at a time and let soak a few seconds before turning.

3. While the bread soaks, melt a couple tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 to 3 slices of bread in at a time cooking until golden brown on all sides, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with rest of the soaked bread.

4. Serve with additional butter and maple syrup.
