What to do with all the holiday Challahs left over? Round Challahs, Oval Braided Challahs, any Challahs, delicious French Toast! Nothing is better than French Toast made out of Challah!
We actually had this for dinner the other night! Why not? My house my rules!
It is so easy to make and takes only minutes to prepare! But be ready to eat it immediately! It is best when hot and fresh out of the pan!
I chose to keep this dairy free but you can make it dairy by using regular milk or butter instead of almond milk and oil.
What you'll need:
1 cup of almond milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond essence (optional)
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1tablespoon powdered sugar (icing sugar)
Oil for frying. I use Canola but any vegetable oil other than olive oil will do.
A sieve for the powdered sugar
Fresh fruit like berries, grapes, bananas (optional)
Cut 8 pieces of Challah thick
In a bowl beat eggs. Add milk, sugar, salt and vanilla extract and mix well
Heat oil on medium heat.
Dip each piece of challah in the milky mixture for a couple of seconds and turn over for a couple more. Don't let soak too long or it will get soggy. Put in pan and cook each piece for about 3 minutes until golden. Turn and do the same on other side.
Challah should be golden in color and not too brown. Take out of pan and place on a paper towel for a few seconds turning once onto other side. Place on the serving plate.
With a sieve cover with powdered sugar and a sprinkle a little cinnamon. You can also add maple syrup, honey, chocolate syrup, fresh fruit and cream. Anything you like!
