Breakfast, Brunch


  • 8 thick slices of whole wheat bread
  • 4 eggs ((beaten))
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 2 tbsp confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves


  1. Whisk the eggs well, and add the half and half, molasses, sugar, and spices.
  2. Soak each slice of bread for about 30 seconds per side, and cook in a buttered pan or griddle until golden browned on each side. Keep the heat on medium so that the bread has a chance to cook through before it gets too browned on the outside.
