I made this on Sunday for our breakfast... In a world with no little kids getting up at 7am on the weekend, this would be perfect for brunch.
1 loaf Challah Bread cut into 2 inch slices
2 cups Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 tsp Cinnamon (optional)
Preheat griddle to 350, or on a medium high heat on the stove. Mix together eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Beat for 30 seconds. Soak pieces of bread into mixture, making sure that each side is evenly coated. Grease griddle. Place bread on. Cook on each side until golden brown. Serve hot. Top with fresh fruit, a variety of syrups of flavored butters. My preferred choice would be to top with fresh boysenberry jam and powered sugar.
A good variation would be to switch a flavored extract like orange or almond for the vanilla. Also ground nutmeg, pumpkin spice or cardamon are great spices to add! Enjoy.
