Challah French Toast With Berry Sauce
While bread is soaking, puree 1 1/2 cups berries with sugar and lemon juice in a blender. If you want to eliminate seeds, for puree through a very fine sieve into a bowl. Transfer to a serving bowl and fold in remaining berries.
Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet or griddle over moderately high heat until foam subsides. Transfer 4 soaked bread slices to skillet with a slotted spatula and cook until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side.
Cook remaining bread in 2 batches, adding more butter as needed. Transfer slices as cooked to a large shallow baking pan (using a clean spatula) and, when all are browned, bake in middle of oven until hot, about 5 minutes. Serve with berry sauce. Dust with confectioners sugar.
