Gingerbread French Toast
Makes: 4 servings
  • 8 slices day-old gingerbread(1/2 inch thick)
  • 220g (4 large) whole eggs
  • 80 milliliters (1/3 cup) milk (I used almond milk but any type would work)
  • 2 milliliters (1/2 teaspoon) vanilla extract
  • ½g (1/4 teaspoon) ground cinnamon
  • 28g(2 tablespoons) unsalted butter for pan
  1. Place gingerbread slices in a 9-13 baking dish (or comparable sized dish) and set aside
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla and cinnamon
  3. Pour over gingerbread slices making sure each slice is wet
  4. Flip slices over to make sure both sides are coated; allow to soak while you get pan ready
  5. Melt half of butter in a large skillet over medium heat and tilt pan to coat
  6. When butter is meltedĀ  and pan is hot, place slices in pan (do not overlap)
  7. Cook for two minutes (or until lightly browned on one side) and then carefully flip each slice over; cook an additional two minutes on second side
  8. Remove French toast from pan and repeat with remaining slices
  9. Enjoy immediately
