Description

This challah French toast recipe makes mornings special! The bread has the best custardy texture and rich flavor.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ cup milk (whole or 2%*)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 slices challah bread, cut 1-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons butter, for cooking

Instructions

  1. In a wide shallow bowl or container, whisk together the eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and kosher salt.
  2. Preheat a griddle over medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon butter. Soak each side of 4 slices of bread in the egg mixture until it becomes saturated, about 15 seconds per side.
  3. Place the bread on the hot skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, until browned.
  4. Repeat with the remaining butter and 4 slices bread. Serve immediately with maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar (or toss both sides in cinnamon sugar, following the instructions in Cinnamon French Toast).

Notes

*Use whole milk for the richest flavor. For a decadent twist, use half milk and half heavy cream.
