My Dad happens to be the ultimate breakfast person. He’s always been a huge believer in eating a complete meal in the morning so that you’re energized, fed, and ready for the day. So on Saturdays and Sundays he’d always whip up a batch of pancakes or French toast for my brother and me and even though, he never added anything really special in it, for some reason they were always amazing.
French toast was never really my favorite dish, I usually preferred my Dad’s pancakes, but over time I actually grew to like them. I’ve even taken his recipe and mixed it with my own to create an extremely delicious French toast that even he loves.
Over the weekend, I thought I’d get into the spirit of fall by whipping up my French toast batter but adding a bit of pumpkin and spice to give it a new festive spin. If you want to make just regular French toast then leave out the pumpkin – it tastes just as delicious!
What you will need:
¼ cup of milk
⅓ cup of half and half
½ cup of pumpkin puree
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of nutmeg
½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
½ tablespoon of honey
6 slices of cinnamon bread*
*This is just the type of bread that I like – any kind can be used.
1. Combine all ingredients in bowl and whisk together.
2. Slightly toast bread slices.
3. Soak each side of bread in mixture for 10 – 15 seconds.
4. Place on low heated non-stick pan.
5. Cook each side of bread for 2 – 3 minutes. Until semi-brown.
6. Drizzle with powdered sugar. Serve warm with butter and syrup.
