The Best Pumpkin French Toast

Sweet, perfectly spiced and topped with a swirl of homemade whipped pumpkin butter – this Pumpkin French Toast is the perfect fall breakfast recipe.

5 Minutes to Prep

Back in high school and college I’d be totally content eating a bowl of cereal for breakfast every morning, but that’s changed.

Gimme eggs, bacon, potatoes, waffles, pancakes or french toast- I want ’em all! Just kidding, or am I? 😉

Big breakfasts aren’t very practical in our home, at least on a day-to-day basis. Mornings are hectic so we stick with scrambled eggs and re-heated pancakes from our freezer stash. Weekends though, they’re the best! We kind of go nuts. I like to whip up all sorts of yummy things, like this pumpkin french toast. It’s definitely a new favorite. It only requires a few ingredients and just 5 minutes to prep. ⏰ So easy!!

Best Bread + How to Make

Did I mention that you can use pretty much whatever bread your heart desires?! I’m talking Texas toast, french bread, challah, or croissants!

You can even use any regular sandwich bread you have on hand. They all work, although we love the thicker bread the best.

To start, you’ll want to set a large non-stick skillet set over medium heat, add a small amount of butter and let it melt. If you’ve got a griddle and want to use that, even better! In a rectangular baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. 

Dip the bread into the mixture, flip sides and then place on the hot skillet. Cook until each side is golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Repeat with remaining ingredients, and serve hot with a dusting of powdered sugar, a big dollop of whipped pumpkin butter and a drizzle of maple syrup.

VARIATIONS

  • Instead of using milk, you can also use Almond milk or even Egg Nog. 
  • If you like your french toast on the sweeter side, you can add a bit of brown sugar too.

How to Make Pumpkin Butter

If you haven’t tried pumpkin butter – you’re missing out. It’s delicious!! You can whip up the pumpkin butter as your french toast cooks.

In a small mixing bowl, add the softened butter (I prefer salted) and beat with a hand mixer for 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup or honey (see NOTES), vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.

Beat for an additional minute or until it gets nice and fluffy. Use it on everything!!

TO STORE – place in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. 

Spice up your fall mornings with this pumpkin french toast! It’s easy, flavorful and can be doubled to serve a crowd. I can’t wait to make this again for the holidays, it’s going to be perfect for our family gatherings.
