I found this recipe for “deceptive” pumpkin French toast on Blogging, It’s what’s for dinner. It was posted by Janette who got the recipe from Jessica Seinfeld’s book Deceptively Delicious. Now, the idea is to not have this French toast taste like pumpkin. You can use this recipe to sneak in good things for your kids to eat without them knowing it.

My oldest son was not home for this meal, but my 8 year old son and 4 year old daughter thought is was just regular old French toast. It’s worked! They had no idea! I have to tell you that I actually even used 1/4 cup pumpkin when I made this.

However, there was no fooling my hubby at all. He asked me right off if this recipe had pumpkin in it. The only thing that gave him the clue there was some in it was the slightly orange color to this French toast. I also used Texas toast as the bread for this recipe and got 7 pieces. The recipe said it made 4. It was yummy.
