It seems like such a simple thing to make…but make it with challah bread, add some powdered sugar and serve with fresh fruit and you have a deliciously sophisticated version. Good enough to eat for dinner!
6 large eggs
1-1/2 cups of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 tablespoons sugar
8 slices challah bread
3 tablespoons butter
fresh fruit or berries
In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon.
Working with 4 or 5 slices at a time, dip challah in egg mixture, turning to coat thoroughly. Heat one tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
Arrange challah in a skillet in a single layer and cook until deep golden brown and cooked through (about 2 to 3 minutes per side). Repeat using the remaining challah.
Transfer French Toast to plates, dust with powdered sugar, top with syrup (or serve on the side) and serve with fresh fruit or berries.
