Ingredients

For best results, cook eibrot in two batches. Overcrowding the pan steams the bread, and that's not good. Batches ensure that each cube develops a golden crust.

Instructions

Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Add 4 cups bread cubes to the bowl; toss with the egg mixture. Allow bread to sit until the cubes are thoroughly soaked, about 5 minutes.

Heat 3 Tbsp. oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high; add soaked bread cubes. Sauté bread cubes in a single layer, stirring occasionally, until bread cubes are golden, about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, soak remaining bread cubes in the egg mixture left in the bowl.

Add 3 Tbsp. butter to sautéed bread cubes in the skillet; stir until butter is melted and cubes are coated, adjusting heat as necessary.

Sprinkle ½ cup sugar over bread in skillet; toss until sugar is melted and syrupy. Transfer eibrot to a platter and serve. Sauté remaining bread in the same manner, using the remaining 3 Tbsp. oil, 3 Tbsp. butter, and ½ cup sugar.

A big bowl is necessary for tossing the amount of bread that you'll be using.
