  • ½ loaf Challah Bread regular or gluten-free
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup Half & Half
  • 1 ½ cups fresh berries plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • Syrup for serving


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a small baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Slice Challah into 1-inch thick slices.
  • Layer bread slices into pan with berries in between slices.
  • Whisk together eggs and half & half.
  • Pour egg mixture over bread, moving the slices slightly to ensure the egg mixture gets in between each slice.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until slices have turned golden in color and until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Garnish with additional berries and dust with powdered sugar. Serve with warm syrup, if desired.



Ingredient Notes
  • Fresh or stale challah bread can be used for this recipe.
  • Whole milk can be substituted for the Half & Half.
  • Any desired combination of berries can be used or a single type of berry. The amount should be equivalent to 1 1/2 cups.
How to store leftovers
  • Store any leftovers store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days. Reheat in the microwave before serving.
  • Individual servings can also be quickly reheated in a hot large nonstick skillet or cast iron skillet in a bit of melted unsalted butter! It will give the slices a nice crust. Serve with real maple syrup.
