Challah French Toast

Challah is an enriched braided bread eaten by many cultures, most significantly associated with the Jewish Sabbath.

4 thick slices challah, crusts removed
2 eggs
200 ml milk
small splash vanilla extract
castor sugar, to taste
knob of butter
selection of red fruits and berries
maple syrup and icing sugar, to serve

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and sugar (about 1 tablespoon), to taste.

Heat a non-stick frying pan with a knob of butter. While the pan and butter are heating up, soak the challah slices briefly in the eggy mixture. Fry them over a medium heat until golden on both sides.

Transfer to serving plates. Drizzle the french toast with maple syrup. Spoon over a selection of berries and red fruits and finish with a light dusting of icing sugar.
