Directions to make Challah French Toast

  • Wash and slice berries. Place in small bowl. Can warm in the microwave for 30-45 seconds or place in small saute pan to warm through.

  • In a large shallow baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, whipping cream, vanilla, agave nectar, cinnmon, and salt.

  • Slice bread into 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick slices. Soak in the egg mixture, about 2-3 minutes on each side.

  • Spray a large saute pan with cooking spray. Melt 1/2 to 1 tablespoons of butter over medium heat to coat the bottom on the pan.

  • Add the soaked bread to the pan and cook about 2-3 minutes on each side until lightly browned.

  • In a preheated oven (225 degrees F), place cooked French toast on a nonstick baking sheet to keep warmed until all slices of bread are cooked.

  • Serve hot with 1-2 tablespoons of mascarpone cheese and fruit between slices and on top layer. Garnish with julienne mint leaves and powdered sugar.
