Challah French Toast

Challah French Toast

This decadent challah bread French toast is delicately flavored with vanilla, cinnamon, and freshly grated nutmeg.


  • 3 extra large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 (3/4-inch-thick) slices of challah
  • Warm pure maple syrup, for serving


  1. Gather ingredients.
  2. In a medium shallow baking dish or bowl, beat eggs with milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg until blended.
  3. Working with one challah slice at a time, soak bread in egg mixture, turning several times.
  4. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large, heavy skillet over medium-low until bubbling. Add two of the soaked challah slices and cook until golden brown on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook until golden brown on the second side, about 2 minutes longer. Repeat with remaining egg-soaked challah.
  5. Serve hot with maple syrup.
