Heat the butter in a small skillet and then reduce the heat. Dip the challah slices one at a time into the egg and cream mixture and turn them over so that it is evenly coated. Let the excess mixture drip into the bowl and then carefully place the coated challah bread in the skillet. Turn the heat up to medium and cook the challah bread until it has browned on one side. Now flip the bread and cook until the other side has also browned. Transfer the toast on a platter and place it in the oven to keep it warm. Cook the other challah bread slices in the same way.
