Challah French Toast
Combine ice cream, eggs, cinnamon and vanilla, whisking well. Pre-heat skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Soak bread for a few seconds in egg/cream mixture, a few pieces at a time, adding to hot pan/griddle prepared with just enough melted butter to coat surface. Cook pieces until golden, approx. 2 min per side. Transfer to serving board, sprinkling with powder sugar, as desired.
Oregon Berry Compote
Combine all and bring to simmer in heavy-bottomed pot (to avoid scorching). Cook until berries have broken down and liquids have reduced a bit, approx. 15 min. Cool completely; serve warm or cold with Challah French Toast.
