Buckle up, buttercup…we’ve got another pumpkin inspired recipe coming atchya (and it probably won’t be the last).
This pumpkin French toast is the perfect way to start your morning…or maybe end your long day! Though French Toast is more of an eat for breakfast type of meal, this delectable dish could be enjoyed at any time!
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
Preheat electric griddle and set aside.
In a 9×13 pan or a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
Butter the preheated griddle.
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.
Serve Pumpkin French toast warm with maple syrup, butter, and powdered sugar, if desired.
