Don’t hate me for this one….it’s goooooood! I mean real goooooood!
And it’s so easy! Here’s my quick tip for the week (half the work is already done for you!):
I came to a screeching halt when I spied Pepperidge Farm’s Pumpkin Spice Bread in the store the other day. I immediately knew that Pumpkin French Toast was in my near future (que the Angels singing!)
If my Grandma was writing this post she would say that the secret to good French Toast is to cook it on low. To allow all those flavors to harmonize together. She would also say use real cream instead of milk when mixing your batter together. – she was the best cook!
Here’s the basic supply list:
Pepperidge Farm Pumpkin Bread
1/4-1/2 cup of milk or cream
1-2 teaspoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice
1-2 teaspoons of vanilla
Nutella or Syrup – whatever your heart desires that day
I’m assuming that everyone has made French Toast before, but just in case this is your very first time…here ya go:
*this is based off of serving about 8-10 pieces of bread. the bread will soak up the batter so you may have to make more batter depending on how many you’re serving.*
Whisk your eggs, cream, vanilla & spice together in a bowl big enough to soak your bread. Flip your bread so both sides are covered in the egg batter. Now, in a greased cast iron skillet (because it’s the best in a cast iron) cook your French toast on low & flip when the bottom side is done. And cook until its golden brown on the other side. I was able to get 4 slices of bread in my large skillet.
Serve with Nutella or syrup or both.
You can thank me later for this one! It’s the perfect thing to serve up this weekend!
