My boys requested French toast for breakfast on Sunday morning. I was ok with their request, but I was in the mood for something fall so I made Pumpkin French Toast. I tend to go pumpkin crazy every fall so I was worried they would roll their eyes and object, but they actually loved the idea of Pumpkin French Toast, especially after they tasted it.

Pumpkin French Toast

Thick slices of bread dipped in a pumpkin spice mixture, cooked in butter, and drizzled with pure maple syrup. This is the perfect fall breakfast!

Yield: 10 slices

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Butter, for griddle or pan
  • 10 slices Texas toast or other thick-sliced bread
  • Maple syrup, butter, and powdered sugar, for serving

Directions:

  1. Preheat electric griddle and set aside.
  2. In a 9×13 pan or a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Butter the preheated griddle.
  4. Dip both sides of each slice of bread into the egg mixture, allowing the bread to soak up some of the mixture. Transfer slices of bread carefully to the griddle and cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until golden brown. Repeat with all slices of bread until coating mixture is gone.
  5. Serve Pumpkin French toast warm with maple syrup, butter, and powdered sugar, if desired.

Note-We like to use a 9×13 pan to make the French toast because it is shallow, easier than a bowl. If you don’t have an electric griddle you can use a non-stick skillet. Cook over medium heat. French toast is best warm the day it is made, but you can keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months. Reheat in the toaster or microwave.
