Pumpkin French Toast Bake

I have a coworker who every year around the holidays brings in homemade goodies for everyone in the office. Pumpkin loaves, cookies, strudels, etc., she spends countless hours on the weekends slaving away to make individualized bags of homemade goodness for everyone. I am alllll about home baked goods. If I'm ever bringing anything to work or to a party, homemade is the way to go.

Anyway, last year she gave me a baked pumpkin loaf, along with a jar of the dry ingredients with instructions on what to add to make my own loaf. I finally made it this past Thanksgiving because I was tired of looking at it in my pantry. So this weekend, I thawed it out, cut it up into little pieces and made, if I do say so myself, an amazing French Toast bake with it.

I followed this recipe for Baked French Toast Bake from Mormon Mavens in the Kitchen, found on pinterest. This recipe was great with the pumpkin bread and I'm sure would be equally amazing with just about any other bread. 

I was very busy in the kitchen this weekend making this french toast as well as: 
and 
Single Serving Chocolate Chip Cookies from No. 2 Pencil  which I made last night so we wouldn't have a whole batch of cookies lying around this week. 
Every single thing was a hit, and I'll post more about them soon!
