I started this blog a year and a half ago and only just realized that I haven’t posted a recipe for French toast. How could I have missed this? I mean, it’s a classic! Not to mention the perfect use for those challah leftovers from Friday night’s dinner. You can serve it with fun toppings: maple syrup, powdered sugar, butter, jam, and fruits. French toast is so versatile, and it can be made for breakfast, a fancy Sunday brunch, or even dinner.

How to make Challah French Toast:

Homemade French toast is so easy! There are only three simple steps: whisk, dip, cook.

First, make your custard, dip in your bread, and cook both sides until golden brown. Top with your favorite toppings, fresh berries, powdered sugar, and syrup, and enjoy! EASY.

Servings: 6


  • 6-8 thick slices of Challah
  • 5 eggs
  • 3/4-1 cup (180- 240 ml) milk
  • 2 tablespoons (20 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • butter or coconut oil for frying


  • Crack the eggs into a pie plate.
  • Add milk, sugar, and vanilla. Whisk until combined.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Then melt a small amount of butter.
  • Dip the Challah in the egg mixture so that it's fully coated. Cook the toast on the first side for 3 to 4 minutes. When it's deep golden brown, flip it to the other side and cook for about 2 minutes. Remove from the pan, and then cook the remaining bread slices.
  • Serve immediately with toppings of your choice.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Use different types of bread, such as brioche, sourdough, or french bread
  • Replace the milk with cream or half and half.
