Servings 12


  • 1 loaf of challah bread
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 medium bananas not too ripe
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Slice your challah loaf into thick pieces.
  • In a big bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  • Arrange the bread slices in a deep, oven-safe dish (we recommend a dutch oven or a similar circular dish with high sides, around 12-14 inches in diameter).
  • Pour the egg mixture over the challah slices, ensuring an even distribution. Cover and let it soak for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Remove the cover and bake for 35-40 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  • In a separate pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter.
  • Add the brown sugar, heavy cream, salt, and vanilla to the melted butter. Whisk until thoroughly combined. Reduce the heat to medium and let it cook for 2-3 minutes until it resembles a caramel sauce.
  • Slice the bananas and add them to the caramel sauce. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes until the bananas slightly soften. Spoon the caramel sauce and bananas over the challah slices.
