Happy Halloween everybody! I was trying to figure out the best post for Halloween, and I decided that October begins the rise of pumpkin everything, so what better recipe than a pumpkin one?
Thoughts Before Cooking:
So I found this recipe on Pinterest from Cooking Classy and thought it would be great to make with my nieces and nephews. I love pumpkins and French toast. What could go wrong?
- 3/4 of Cup of Milk
- 1/2 Cup of Pumpkin Puree
- 4 Eggs
- 2 tbsp of Packed Light Brown Sugar
- 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp of Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp of Ground Nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp of Ginger
- 9 Slices of Texas Toast (Or Brioche or Challah Bread)
- Maple Syrup
- Preheat an electric griddle to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. (A non-stick skillet set over medium heat also works fine.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together milk; pumpkin puree, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger until well combined.
- Pour into a shallow dish.
- Butter the griddle and dip the bread into the mixture. Then rotate and coat the opposite side.
- Transfer to griddle or pan, and cook until golden brown. Flip to cook the other side.
- Serve with butter and syrup.
Thoughts After Cooking:
I didn’t really like it.
None of the ingredients blended together that well, and there wasn’t any pumpkin-y taste in it.
However, my nieces and nephews helped me make it, taking turns in whisking and mixing, so maybe that was the reason it didn’t blend as well. Maybe I should have whisked each ingredient separately. I might try again, and if I do , I will post an update.
