Start your day with vegetarian gingerbread French toast with molasses. I love French toast because it is so versatile. You can make this with any bread.
What is French Toast?
French toast is bread dipped in egg batter and fried. However, a popular variation of French toast is gingerbread French toast. Gingerbread French toast is like other French toasts except that it uses gingerbread as its main ingredient, adding flavor and spices to the egg batter.
And that’s the one we are going to be making today. It is so lovely, especially when you have it in the morning. But you can make this at any time of the day. As I always say, “Any time is French toast time, especially with gingerbread French toast!”
French toast in our family always makes a great breakfast for your family when you are in a hurry or not in the mood to cook.
