Holla! French Toast!
Buttermilk Challah French Toast
Yields 9 slices French Toast
9 1/2 to 1 inch slices of Challah Bread
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 heaping tablespoon orange zest
Pinch of cloves
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
First slice up the bread in about 1/2 inch slices
Whisk together all ingredients either in a low, flat pyrex, or transfer the liquid to something that you can fit slices in to soak.
Let them soak for up to 5 minutes.
Cook over a medium-low flame.
If you don't have a griddle, like us, you can turn the oven on really low and keep the slices warm until they are all cooked. They like to be cozy in a pig pile of French Toast.
Top with Strawberry-Orange syrup, fresh fruit, and a drizzle of maple syrup and brunch is ready!
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon maple syrup
3/4 cup cut strawberries
Put it all in a pot and cook until it looks like mush.
