Chocolate Cinnamon Babka French Toast

I made a great loaf of Chocolate Cinnamon Babka not too long ago. We mostly scarfed it up right away, but I did manage to squirrel away a few pieces for just this purpose. What can I say? I’m sure your imagination can run wild with this one! It was awwwwwwwesome! The orange zest really complements the chocolate in the Babka. I didn’t even need any syrup, though I couldn’t resist the butter🙂 If you are planning on making that Babka, do your best to save a few morsel for this treat!

Chocolate Cinnamon Babka French Toast

yield: 6 slices


  • 6 thick slices of Chocolate Cinnamon Babka
  • 6 Large eggs
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • Finely grated orange zest from one large orange
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

In a large, shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and orange vest.

Add Babka slices to the egg mixture and turn gently to coat evenly.

Leave the bread in the egg mixture for 1-2 minutes, allowing it to soak up some of the liquid.

Lightly oil a griddle and heat it over medium-high heat. Remove the bread from the egg mixture and place on the hot griddle.

Cook until the babka is a golden brown, 1-2 minutes and then flip and cook the other side

Serve hot with butter and syrup if desired.
