Chuck's Molasses French Toast


The molasses in the batter gives this version of the classic breakfast food a caramel coating that is quite delicious. This one also proves to be a great way to use up the left over Challah from Shabbat on a Saturday morning.

  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon, or more to taste

  • 12 thick slices challah bread
