Challah is a yeast bread that contains flour, eggs and a little sugar. The texture is similar to French brioche which makes it a lovely option for French toast. It is light enough that you can cut thick slices and not feel like you just swallowed a brick but keep in mind that the thicker the slice, the longer you should soak it in the egg-milk mixture to saturate the middle.
