  Makes 4 servings, and it takes about 25 minutes to make and cook, start to finish.
One of the kids who tested this recipe wanted to know if we would get to make French toast out of actual gingerbread. That does sound good, but if we soaked gingerbread in the batter it would turn to mush and you'd have a big mess instead of breakfast. To make something just as delicious, we add gingerbread spices (cinnamon, ginger, and allspice) to the batter. Then we put in some bread to soak up all the flavor. It's almost like having dessert for breakfast!
For the Toast:
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 teaspoon allspice
3 or 4 slices Italian or sourdough bread, or challah (egg bread)
For the Topping (you choose):
Real maple syrup
Sliced peaches or strawberries
Powdered sugar
Tools: Small bowl for breaking the eggs, 2-cup liquid measure, whisk, pie pan, dinner knife for cutting butter, frying pan, spatula, plates and forks for eating!

Include 1 teaspoon powdered ginger to step 2.

My kids have been making This recipe since last year. We love it so much we make it all the time. It's even more fun when you cut the bread with a gingerman cookie cutter
