Fall means pumpkin time!Throughout the season, I'll see people enjoying all kinds of pumpkin treats, from lattes and pies to egg nog and even coffee creamers! I could go on and on. One of my favorites is Pumpkin French Toast, which is a great way to start the day. Enjoy and pass it on to your friends!
This recipe offers bread coated with a spiced pumpkin mixture which highlights the French toast. One-fourth teaspoon allspice can also be added if you want more of a spice flavor!
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup pumpkin puree
- ½ tsp. vanilla extract
- ½ tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 9 slices bread, challah, brioche or whole wheat
- ¼ cup butter
- Powdered sugar
- Maple syrup, warm
- Fresh fruit or apple sauce
In a medium bowl, mix eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, spices and sugar. Soak each bread slice for about 30 seconds on each side. Melt butter in a skillet and cook the bread on medium-high heat until browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Top with your favorite toppings or put some sauce in between slices, and serve!
