This recipe is great for a Saturday morning French Toast or if your family is in the mood for some great breakfast for dinner Friday night this is also a great choice. Since Friday is the only day the Challah loaf is available at Zeppole Baking Co. it makes the Challah a hot item that sells out rather quickly so come early to get it while you can.
