Sugar And Shoes



Pumpkin becomes the most popular fruit in October, why? Because it’s fall! Here a pumpkin, there a pumpkin, everywhere a pumpkin pumpkin!

Not only do we look forward to fall, but my favourite holiday! HALLOWEEN!! Soon my blog will be packed with halloween decor, treats, and costume ideas but for now, let’s give Fall a chance to shine!

I think we can all agree that food made by a mother’s hand is tranquillising, so, a little change on the blog today, mum takes over with toasties!

Hello all you beautiful people, or as Raneil calls you, SAS-ies! This is the first time I have shared my recipe on the internet and to do it on my daughter’s blog is joyful. Hope you enjoy making these as much as we did!  




1/4 cup Pumpkin puree (if you can’t find canned puree, cut 1/4 a pumpkin into cubes, boil till soft and mash the cubes up)

1/4 cup milk

A loaf of Brioche (you could use a normal loaf of bread too but this adds a more spongy texture and sweetness)

3 eggs

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon All Spice

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon 

1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg 




Cut the Brioche into about 2cm thick slices gently as the bread is delicate and might tear easily, and keep them aside.


Place all ingredients in a tray and mix them thoroughly till all has combined and formed a runny heavy mixture.


Carefully dip a slice in the mixture and very gently press to help the bread soak up as much mixture as possible.


Add a generous nob of butter in a pan on low-medium heat. 


Carefully place the soaked slice on the pan and slowly shake it to help the butter surround the slice for an even cook.


Flip the slice carefully after 2-5 mins and the bread should look like the picture above, brown all round and slightly lighter in the middle. Pay attention to the slice as it could burn easily. Remove after 2-5 mins and repeat with the other slices.




Add a generous slice of butter on the top (the more the better :P), followed by a drizzle of maple syrup, and serve with freshly whipped cream (I added some cinnamon into the whipped cream to correspond with the toast’s flavours).

Beware Raneil, I might take over your blog now! These were so fun to make and the taste was literally to die for! Goodbye SAS-ies, till next time! 

Thank you mum! These would go so well the Iced Coffee (click the link). They were DELICIOUS! Take my word for it! Don’t forget to leave a comment below for mum :*
