Challah French Toast

Challah makes some of the best French toast because of its spongey texture and buttery flavor. Buy a round loaf or long braided loaf of it to use for French toast — a great way to utilize leftover bread from any meal.

Ingredients

  • 8 medium eggs
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch of anise seed
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 loaf of challah bread, cut into 6 or so large 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • Pinch of confectioners' sugar

Directions

Whisk the eggs, milk, and spices together until just frothy. Melt half the butter in a large skillet and, working in batches, soak the bread briefly in the egg mixture, turning over so both sides are coated.

Shake off any extra liquid and place on a griddle over medium heat. Cook 4-5 minutes on each side until golden brown. Dust with confectioners' sugar and top with pure maple syrup.
