  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 loaf of stale bread, or a stale baguette, sliced

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl whisk together pumpkin, almond milk, cornstarch, spices, and vanilla.
  2. Dip bread sliced into pumpkin mixture, ensuring that it covers crust and edges. Layer onto a baking sheet. Let sit for 15 minutes, then flip over and soak for 10 minutes more.
  3. Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Add a few Tablespoons vegan margarine and let melt. Add slices of bread into pan and cook about 10 minutes on each side- they should be golden brown with dark spots. Leave in pan over low heat if you want more firm French Toast.
