Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 c. almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1 loaf challah bread sliced to desired thickness
  • butter

Instructions

  1. Mix, milk, lemon juice, and eggs until well blended.
  2. Dip each piece of bread into the egg batter and coat both sides.
  3. Heat skillet to medium, place 1 tablespoon butter in pan (or spray with cooking spray) and place bread into pan and cook on each side until lightly crisp.
  4. Spread butter on top of each slice, drizzle with your favorite syrup and dust with powdered sugar.

Recipe Notes

Of course you don't have to use challah bread, it just happened to be the tastiest looking thing at the bakery when I went. Typically we only have wheat bread on hand, so I would generally use that. Use whatever bread you'd like. This challah however is my favorite!

    Can you squeeze fresh lemon juice over the toast instead of mixing with the milk? That is the way we do the German Pancakes but wasn’t sure with the egg coating.

    1. Yvonne

      Hi Angela, you sure could squeeze the fresh lemon juice over the toast instead of mixing it into the milk! P.S. I love German Pancakes. :)

    I use an old family fave pikelet recipe which includes ‘a few drops of lemon in milk’ and as it is not dissimilar in being a sort of batter mix, I’m sure it works just as well with this French Toast recipe, which I look forward to trying. Can someone tell me the diff between challah (sp?) bread and other bread? Is it like sourdough perhaps? I’ve not heard this term before.

    Wouldn’t this just result in curdled milk? Adding lemon juice to milk is how I make buttermilk for recipes.

    1. Yvonne

      You are correct in that’s the way to make buttermilk.. I’m wondering if since I used almond milk that’s why it didn’t curdle for me. With lemon juice and regular milk.. I believe you have to let it sit for it to turn in to buttermilk – so as long as you don’t let it sit it should work?? I LOVED this with the almond milk. Worked great for me! Hopefully it can work great for you too!
