Essential Slow Cooker RecipesGuess what? Challah bread is the key to making the sweetest French toast. This is one of the best kept secrets and will make you the star of the kitchen. I like serving this with whipped cream, but you could also add fresh fruit, like sliced strawberries, or chocolate syrup if you want to make this an extra-special treat.

  • Yield: 6 to 8 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 4 Hours


  • 1 (1-pound) loaf challah bread, thickly sliced
  • ¾ cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Whipped cream (optional)
How to Make It
  1. Lightly spray the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.
  2. Layer half the bread slices over the bottom of the slow cooker.
  3. Sprinkle half the chocolate chips over the bread slices.
  4. Layer the remaining bread slices on top of the chocolate chips.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon.
  6. Pour the egg mixture over the bread slices. Gently press down on the slices to submerge.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top.
  8. Cover, remove the insert, and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  9. Let the insert sit out on the counter for 15 minutes. Replace the insert and cook on Low for 4 hours or on High for 2 hours.
  10. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
