So as I said in my previous post, we really do not have a pumpkin eating or pumpkin using culture in Kenya. The only thing pumpkins are famous for is feeding children. So with all the recipes up on Pinterest that were using I just had to jump on the bandwagon and try something.
I’ve tried a couple of recipes but this is so far my favourite. The flavours were amazing. Couldn’t believe it was made with pumpkins. Try for breakfast sometime for your family; no one will even guess that you used pumpkins, so you will get rave reviews while feeding them to a healthy yet tasty breakfast.
Recipe adapted from: http://www.emilybites.com/
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- ¾ cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon mixed spice (if you don’t have mix some cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. The proportions should be more cinnamon, then ginger then cloves then nutmeg)
- 10 slices bread
In a large shallow bowl combine the eggs, milk, pumpkin and spice and whisk together until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.
pour some oil into a pan bring to medium-low to medium heat. Dip each side of a piece of bread into your egg/pumpkin mixture to coat and then shake off any excess mixture. Place the coated bread on the pan and repeat until the pan is full. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown and then flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Repeat the process till all the bread is cooked. EASY PEESY.
