FRENCH TOAST…with Challah Bread


Good Morning! Semra (Aylin’s mom) here…today I want to share a classic simple dish with you. French toast… it’s a dish made with slices of bread soaked in a mixture of eggs, milk or cream and then pan fried. I usually like to use brioche or challah. Also, adding orange zest and a little vanilla in the egg mixture makes it more flavorful and extra special. 

I hope you enjoy. Xx, Semra




1 Loaf of Challah or Brioche bread (Linked Here)
6 large eggs  (Linked Here)
2 tsp orange zest (zest of on orange) (Linked Here)
1 Tbsp honey  (Linked Here)
1 tsp vanilla extract  (Linked Here)
1 1/2 cups whole milk or half-and-half  (Linked Here)
1/2 tsp salt (Linked Here)



  • In a large shallow bowl layer slices of bread 
  • Whisk eggs, milk, salt, orange zest and vanilla until combined 
  • Pour over the slices of bread, making sure all sides absorb the liquid and let it sit for five minutes 
  • Heat a griddle or large sauté pan medium heat
  • Melt 1 Tbsp butter 
  • Fry soaked bread 2-3 minutes each side until browned. Repeat until all the slices are cooked. 
  • If you’re not serving right away, place them on a sheet pan and keep it in the warm oven. 200F 
  • Serve with maple syrup, whipped cream and fresh fruit
