There are few pleasures more delicious than the Friday night Jewish tradition of the breaking of challah bread. And Rockland County, New York’s Challah Fairy makes the enjoyment that much sweeter, because their kosher, nut-free, and dairy-free challah is the real New York deal. Friday night’s feast can be re-mixed into Saturday morning brunch decadence when you use leftover Challah to make The Challah Fairy’s to-die-for French Toast. The Challah Fairy herself shared with us her legendary french toast recipe–just in time for the weekend.
Any plain or sweet challah will work for French toast, but the Cinnamon Crumb and Chocolate Chip Crumb is especially memorable.
Slice challah 3/4- 1 inch thick.
Mix equal amounts of eggs and milk (you can use almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk–anything you prefer!)
Add sugar to taste and a touch of real vanilla. Mix well to incorporate.
Dip both sides of the bread into the mixture, careful to just coat the bread instead of saturate it.
Fry in hot butter or oil on a low flame until bread becomes toasted–your tastebuds will certainly know when it’s ready.
Serve with real maple syrup or a scoop of your favorite ice cream!
