Ah the sleepover. Nothing could be more blissful than a couple’s first weekend together…. Many a girl has swooned over thoughts of coffee and the crossword, tucked in bed with her new beloved, eating something fabulous (and undoubtedly fattening). We have every Jennifer Anniston movie to thank for that. Hell even Julia Roberts got a big fantastic breakfast the morning after in Pretty Woman. Not that every morning after is pretty. I seem to recall Mr. Kitchen and I being pretty hungover. No matter, I’ve got an easy no-fail awesome Challah bread french toast recipe for you. I told you that leftover Challah bread from the You’re Gonna Remember Me Brown Bettys would come in handy. Wanna make sure he keeps coming back for breakfast? Who could resist this?
Challah Bread French Toast
(Makes 6 slices)
1/2 loaf Challah loaf bread
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Strawberries, stemmed and sliced
Butter (for frying)
Confectioner’s sugar (for dusting)
Slice Challah bread loaf into six slices (1/4 inch slices. In a bowl, beat eggs, heavy cream, vanilla, cinnamon and brown sugar well. Heat pan over medium heat. Melt a pat of butter in pan. Dip a slice of the Challah in the egg batter on each side. Put into pan, browning on each side for approximately 2 minutes. Note: I’ve found it’s best to cover the pan with a tight fitting lid, which will keep in the moisture and reduce the chance of burning. Repeat with each slice of Challah. Garnish with strawberries, blueberries and confectioner’s sugar.
