Pumpkin Bread French Toast Upcycle- I went there.



This post is because I just crafted a new recipe by upcycling my already baked pumpkin bread and I thought I would share it with you in case  you had some left over breads of your own.
Every year as fall blows in, I start my annual pumpkin bread baking. 
I usually bake several in the fall , one around Thanksgiving ,one around Xmas and one around the New Year . 
It seems to be the perfect little gift or the perfect match to my new addiction, Starbucks coffee.

I like to have it around  for when people pop in to visit or if I am heading out to visit. My family can't wait for the baking to begin, and I like that too. It's also my favorite thing for road trips. You can buy a yummmy gooey Cinnabon on the road but I make my pumpkin bread healthier. 

I use the traditional Libby's recipe but I substitute 3/4 of the oil with apple sauce and I use egg whites instead of whole eggs.  You can substitute whole wheat flour for traditional flour and I usually leave the last 1/2 cup of flour out and substitute with oatmeal and ground flax. With all the flavor from the spices you'll never notice the difference.

One morning I decided we need a french toast breakfast and just looked over at the pumpkin bread and thought "ooooohhhh yeah". 
You know what to do. Soak the bread in eggs(do the egg white thing)


                             A little oil or butter in the pan.




Add a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a drizzle of maple syrup and you are in heaven.



Happy New Year friends. 

Hope this sparks some fun ideas for your breads.
