  • 4 thick slices—about 1-inch/2.5 cm—challah bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk or half-and-half
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tbs butter plus extra for serving
  • fresh berries - optional
  • powdered/icing sugar - optional
  • syrup of your choice


  • Beat eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk in the milk until well blended. Then whisk in the cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Lay the bread slices in a large pan (such as a 13 x 9 pan or large casserole dish) then pour over the egg mixture. Let this sit for about 5 minutes then flip the bread slices over.
  • Heat a large skillet or flat griddle over medium heat. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter on the griddle. Place the bread slices on the griddle and cook until one side is golden brown. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter on the griddle/pan then flip and cook the other side until it’s golden brown.
  • Serve with berries, dust with sugar if desired, additional butter and your favourite syrup.
