Part of the magic of weekend mornings is getting to eat a special breakfast. At least that’s what I thought growing up! We had pancakes, waffles, or french toast almost every Saturday morning, and since I’ve lived on my own, I’ve often found myself continuing on that tradition. I love “seasonal-izing” food for specific holidays or times of the year, so it comes as no surprise to those around me that I’ve turned to making gingerbread flavored breakfasts. I knew I needed to share this with you as soon as possible, because it’s just that good.

Ingredients  (makes 2 servings)

  • 8-9 pieces of bread
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/3 tsp cloves
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla flavoring
  • powdered sugar (optional)
  • syrup

It was quite easy to make. Here’s what I did.


Mix up the eggs. Then add spices, molasses, and vanilla flavoring.

Gingerbread French Toast 1

Cook french toast as you normally would. Because of the coloring of the spices and molasses, you have to be a bit more careful because you can’t judge purely on color.

Gingerbread French Toast 2

I sprinkled some powdered sugar and syrup on it, and dug in immediately. It smelled almost exactly like gingerbread cookies, and it was just as delicious! If you’re looking for a delicious “Christmas” type of breakfast to make, this is definitely one you need to try!

Now it’s your turn to share! DO you make seasonal food at all? Do you have any fun plans for today?
