Pumpkin French Toast
My family is always so excited to enjoy hot breakfasts during the fall and winter months. We are usually so pressed for time on school days that hot breakfasts are usually made on the weekends. Every fall, I get crazy with pumpkin breakfast ideas. My kiddos really like my CopyCat IHOP Pumpkin Pancakes so I make those frequently.
This Pumpkin French Toast is also a frequent request. They all know it is one of my favorites. So if they request this french toast recipe, I am more apt to make a hot breakfast, ha ha.
My daughter and I are the biggest pumpkin fans in the house. After enjoying our Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese frosting last week, I think we are in full on pumpkin everything mode.
This recipe requires just a few ingredients and comes together quickly. I like to bust out my big griddle for french toast if I am feeding my entire gang. Since I use Texas Toast, it is a bit more filling than standard sandwich bread is.
3/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Pumpkin Puree
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice or Homemade Pumpkin Spice I shared here
1 tsp Cinnamon
8-9 slices Texas Toast or thick sliced Bread
Butter for griddle and for serving
Maple syrup for serving
Mix together eggs, milk, pumpkin, sugar, brown sugar, and spices.
Heat 1 teaspoon butter in skillet over medium heat until butter is sizzling.
Dip each slice of bread in egg mixture allowing it to soak for several seconds, then flip and repeat on other side.
Transfer several slices to skillet and cook for about 3 minutes per side until browned.
Serve warm with butter and syrup.
