Challah Crazy for Mother’s DayMay 16, 2011 at 6:00 am | Posted in Brunch | 6 Comments
That’s right Laurita and I went crazy on Mother’s Day! First we had a ton of sugar for breakfast and then we went nuts with the huge garden tiller and got the garden ready and planted tomatoes for momma and abuelita!
Laurita and I have the bruises and buff looking arms to prove it. Laurita was a big help making this challah bread french toast too. I love my sister!!! And I love my mama, so that’s why we made this! And Martha Stewart helped too, she cooked up a slightly more fancy version of this on the Today Show the Thursday before Mother’s Day and this is what inspired me!
Go check out our steps!
Before watching the half marathon in Frederick last Saturday, Becca and I stopped at the Stone Hearth Bakery and picked up a loaf of challah bread. We also picked up two scones for us to eat while watching my friends run the race, but those were gone in 30 minutes!
Thankfully Laurita and I had this to use!
And I had bought some Wegmans Maple Syrup a couple of months back when Kendra and I made a pancake dinner for Shrove Tuesday!
Momma loves real maple syrup. I think its her favorite thing to have other than ice cold milk. 😀
Speaking of Wegmans- the Frederick store is opening on June 5! Do you realize how soon that is?? I will be in Buffalo, for Ned’s little sister’s wedding that weekend, but I will definitely be stopping by that next Monday evening!
And there was butter! Not too much, just enough.
Laurita cracked the eggs for me. I got the eggs from the Frederick Farmer’s Market too! Laurita commented on how strong the shell was, its cause they are fresh!!
Doesn’t her manicure look nice? With those pretty rings too.
Beautiful yellow mixture with luscious buttery bread.
Cute sister manning the stove.
In the hot pan!
Gosh I love french toast. I love the sugariness, I love the browned parts, I love the slightly mushy inside and I love the crispy edges.
Go here for the recipe, it was a winner.
