Pumpkin French toast is easy, delicious and a great treat for this time of the year. Serve it for breakfast or brunches with plenty of maple syrup.
You can use canned pumpkin for this recipe however all you really need is to boil it, mash it and drain it of any excess liquid.
You can also use any type of bread you want for this. I find that day old white bread is the best but feel free to use your favorite kind.
This French toast is loaded in flavor due to the spices that are added to the eggs. Cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and cloves make this treat pretty fantastic.
Here is what you are going to need to make this delicious and easy pumpkin French toast:
12 slices of white bread with no crust
½ cup pumpkin puree – homemade* or canned
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. allspice
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
1 TBS milk
Unsalted butter for cooking the toast
If you are making homemade pumpkin puree simply peel it and boil it until you can mash it. Place the mashed pumpkin in a sieve and drain out the excess liquid.
Place the pumpkin, eggs, spices and milk in a big bowl. Mix it well making sure you dissolve all the spices.
Melt a bit of butter in a skillet. Dunk the bread into the egg making sure to coat both sides well. Place the bread in the skillet and allow the bottom to brown. Flip it and brown the other side. Remove from pan. You can keep these warm in a very low oven until you are done.
Serve two French toasts on a plate topped with maple syrup. Enjoy.
