The photo above shows my preparation to try out a new idea! I had been reading an article about gingerbread french toast on a blog called Vegging at the Shore. I loved the idea because I love french toast. As I thought about it, I wondered if it wouldn't be delicious to make the french toast out of real gingerbread. Then, to take it a step further, how about Pumpkin Gingerbread, since I had some pumpkin in my fridge? So, I went to Pinterest and searched for a recipe for Pumpkin Gingerbread and of course, I found many recipes. I settled on this one from Simply Recipes. It came out beautifully!
Here is the recipe for the lemon sauce. It is super easy. Kind of like a lemon curd when it cools, but I made it before I made the french toast and kept it warm to serve.
Slice your bread, and carefully dip it into the batter and fry on a hot griddle. (I like my cast iron, like this one.) The bread is kind of tender, so be gentle.
