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!
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.
