This is made from leftover Sabbath challah (if that happens to your family).

1 – 1 1/2 challah bread

4 eggs

1 tbsp vanilla

1 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

Oil for frying

1 – 1  1/2 loaves of challah, broken into small pieces in a large bowl.  Cover the bread with water and allow to soak until soft.  Then, squeeze out excess water.

To the challah add the eggs, vanilla, sugar and cinnamon.  Mix well.

Form into small pancakes and fry in hot oil about 2 minutes on each side.

Drain on paper towels on a wire rack.

Serve with hot maple syrup or confectioner’s sugar.
