  • 9x13 pan
  • frying pan

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk can substitute non-dairy milk to make this recipe pareve
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 10 slices challah


  • Slice 8-10 slices of challah into ½ inch thick slices.
  • Add 6 eggs, milk, cinnamon, and salt to a 9x13 baking pan.

Tips and Suggestions

  • Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or bourbon (or both) to the batter before mixing.
  • Leave your challah slices out the night before so that the bread dries out. Yes, technically you will be making it "stale" but it is in a controlled way. The reason you may want to do this is that the drier the bread, the more batter it will soak up. Think of the difference between a wet sponge and a dry sponge.
  • Top with blueberries, strawberries, or bananas.
  • Make Challah French Toast into a dessert by adding berries, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate syrup.
  • Have this recipe in mind and make extra challahs for Shabbat or Rosh Hashanah.
  • For those leaving a cooking flame on over Yom Tov, this makes a perfect breakfast or brunch treat.
