Vanilla Cinnamon Challah French Toast


This butter though.

I think i just spoiled myself for life in regards to boring old butter. I now want to infuse it with everything i can think of. More fruit? Sure. Olive oil and garlic? Sounds great. Melted chocolate? Hmmm. Vegetables? Ehhh. SRIRACHA?!? I think i may be pushing it…

I really wish i had the time to make homemade bread every week. I forgot how amazing your house smells with bread baking away in the oven and love not having to purchase it at the store for the week. I made challah this past weekend and this time HAD TO HAD TO HAD TO turn it into french toast. The last time i made it (which was the first time ever!) i was so impressed with myself that i managed to make bread that was not only edible, but deeelicious that Casey and i gobbled it up with not a crumb to spare.

On another note, when i finished kneading the dough (i typically use our coffee table) i left a tub of flour sitting out and of course our little monster got into it while we were out. More on that in Thursday’s post…

I’m usually not a fan of really carby breakfasts (eggs + green smoothies for life<3) but when the bread is this scrumptious & homemade i just couldn’t resist. Plus i had a side of fruit so that kicks it up a notch, no? Either way, it’s super filling and satisfying and like i said before… THIS BUTTER!

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
French Toast:
  • 4 slices of challah
  • ⅔ cup almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Pure maple syrup for topping
Strawberry Honey Butter:
  • 5 strawberries, hulled
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 Tbsp honey
  1. Bring a small pot of water to a boil and boil the strawberries for two minutes.
  2. Add them to a food processor and pulse 2-3 times to turn them into a rough jelly.
  3. Add the strawberries and honey to the softened butter and mash with a fork.
  4. In a small bowl mix the milk, eggs, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  5. Dip each slice of challah in the milk mixture and flip to coat the other side. Place on a nonstick skillet or griddle (i used a griddle) and cook on each side approximately 3-4 minutes.
  6. Top with the strawberry honey butter and pure maple syrup.
