  • Summary

    You won't believe how easy it is to give French toast a crackly, crunchy caramelized sugar coating. This recipe works best with day-old bread. If using fresh bread, reduce the soaking time by half.

    Ingredients

    • 4 large eggs
    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
    • 1 vanilla bean, split, and seeds scraped out, or 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • Coarse salt
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 loaf challah bread (about 8 ounces), sliced into 1-inch-thick pieces
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • Fresh fruit, such as peaches, and creme fraiche, for serving
