French Toast--My Vacation Breakfast



I am currently on vacation.  We're at the beach in North Carolina, and it's quite luxurious.  Our house is on the beach, and at night, I leave my window open to listen to the waves.  I also have time to make real breakfasts.  My typical routine is too crazy for fresh breakfasts, so we often do cereal or bagels or frozen (homemade) pancakes.  But during vacation, we actually get breakfasts that are hot from the stove, like this French toast.  My kids love it, and although I don't make it daily, it's relatively simple.  It also makes a lot of French toast, so I freeze the leftovers to serve during my busy non-beach life.  :-)

French Toast
Makes 8-10 pieces


4 eggs
1 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 heaping teaspoon apple pie spice (or a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, mace and/or cloves)
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
8-10 thick slices of challah bread
1 tablespoon butter

Heat a large pan or griddle over medium heat.  Whisk the eggs, milk, brown sugar, vanilla extract, spices, and lemon zest and juice in a shallow pan or wide bowl.  Melt the butter in the pan.  Place the slices of challah in the egg mixture, making sure to allow the bread to soak up the custard.  Let the excess drain off of the bread and place on the griddle.  Cook until the bread is golden on one side and then flip carefully.  Cook for another few minutes until the other side is golden.  Serve hot with syrup, powdered sugar or fruit.
