Challah French Toast

Challah French Toast Recipe via Kudos Kitchen By Renee

Can I tell you a little secret? I’ve never been a big fan on sweet breakfasts. Pancakes, waffles and French toast are things that never really tempt me. Until now, that is. A few weeks ago I made a Braided Challah Bread for the “Back To The Future Baking Buddies” group I’m involved with and loved it so, so much that I just knew it would be superb as French toast.

Ready for another secret from me? I’ve never been a big fan of cooking breakfast in the morning. I LOVE going out to eat breakfast in restaurants, but as far as starting a Saturday or Sunday morning in the kitchen whipping up a big breakfast (and making all the dirty dishes that go along with it)…no thanks.

But slowly, all that is changing and for the past few weekends I find myself more and more in the kitchen whisking eggs, frying bacon, starting the day with dirty dishes…and enjoying it! *sigh*

Challah French Toast Recipe

Serves: 4-6       Prep Time: 10 minutes     Cook Time: 15 minutes

12 slices Challah bread (store bought or homemade), cut into 1 1/2″ thick slices
4 eggs
1 cup milk (I used 2%)
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus additional for topping
butter for frying
powdered sugar

-In a large shallow dish (a pie pan works perfectly) whisk together the eggs, milk, extracts, cinnamon and 2 tablespoons maple syrup.
-Add the Challah slices, 1 or two at a time to the egg mixture, flipping to coat both sides.
-In a large skillet over medium heat, add about 1 tablespoon butter and a few slices of the egg Challah.
-Cook until golden brown on the first side and then flip to cook the second side the exact same way.
-Remove to a platter to keep warm and continue the same process with the remaining Challah slices.
-Serve hot with additional maple syrup and/or powdered sugar if desired.

Wanna know something else? I’m hungry just looking at this again! LOL
The times, they are a changing 🙂

Just a spoonful of maple syrup makes the medicine go down. Er. Um. Better make that sugar, but I bet maple syrup would work too 😉
