Servings 4


  • 4 1- inch thick slices challah bread
  • 1/2 cup or more! Nutella
  • 2 bananas sliced
  • 1 cup half-and-half or milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup crushed cornflakes
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Optional: powdered sugar and maple syrup


  • First cut each thick slice of challah in almost all the way through- leave one end intact. Then spread with Nutella on both sides of the challah (I made my own using this Nutella recipe, feel free to buy some!) Then add in sliced bananas.
  • Then whisk together half-and-half (or milk), eggs, honey, salt, cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Soak the stuffed challah in the liquid mixture for about 30 seconds per side making sure the center isn’t dry.
  • Then coat in cornflake crumbs, You can always crush your own cornflakes, or purchase pre-crushed.
  • Now heat butter over medium heat in a large saute pan and cook for about 3 minutes per side until golden brown. Repeat with the other slices, adding more butter when necessary.
  • Slice, and serve with extra bananas, powdered sugar and maple syrup.
