SRC: Pumpkin French Toast Bake

It’s Secret Recipe Club time again. Actually, it’s my last time. I made the tough decision to quit doing Secret Recipe Club. 2013 is a year of letting go of obligations and being as true to myself as possible. And, while I have enjoyed Secret Recipe Club, it feels like the right time to walk away.

This month I was assigned Angels Homestead – a lovely blog that goes way beyond just recipes – to cleaning tips (if only she could teach my child) and ideas to save money (something I can always get behind) and menu planning (something at which I completely fail). And, in a true bit of irony, Angels Homestead is owned and operated by April – the founder of Secret Recipe Club. I guess there’s nothing like going out with a bang, eh?

I gave the kiddo several options, and let him choose this month’s recipe. Monkey French Toast was high on his list. But, he eventually settled on Pumpkin Pie French Toast Bake. I made only the slightest of changes, subbing in gluten-free bread, almond milk, and palm sugar.

I think the gluten-free bread soaked up the liquid a little more than regular bread might have, as the end result was a wee bit dry. But, the flavor was much-loved by the kiddo.

Thanks to April, for her wealth of recipes and for starting Secret Recipe Club. Best wishes for the future!

    I don’t know why, but gluten free bread does seem to need a bit more liquid in recipes then regular bread. I’m glad it still turned out tasty for you. Like Sarah, I have enjoyed having you in the club, and really hate to see you go. Good luck in whatever new adventures you undertake, and we hope to still see you around as a visitor!

    What a delicious sounding breakfast dish. Great pick for your final post!!

  5. I’ve been wanting to try baked french toast for a long time but the long bake time is what keeps me from trying it. Yours looks great…your kids made a great SRC pick! Sorry to see that you are leaving the club…All the best!

    It was my last time, too – same reasons. It was fun while I did it. I’ve marked this recipe to try, as I love pumpkin, and I love baked French toast.
