  • 1 loaf challah bread , sliced ½ inch thick
  • 3 eggs
  • cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon powder sugar (optional)
  • fresh blueberries (optional)


  • Heat a nonstick pan over medium high heat.
  • In a large baking dish, beat together eggs, milk, cinnamon and vanilla. Dip bread in egg mixture coating thoroughly, and shaking off any excess before adding to the pan.
  • Cook each toast on both sides until golden brown, about 2 minutes each side.
  • To serve, drizzle with maple syrup, sprinkle a little powder sugar and top with fresh fruit, if desired.


  • Use a good non-stick pan or griddle that won't let the bread stick to the pan. I like to use a stove top cast iron non-stick reversible griddle like this one. The griddle will help create the perfect crust on your french toast and give it the right texture.
  • Use day old challah bread for the best French toast. It will be drier and soak up more of the custard.
