The best Pumpkin Spice French Toast Recipe.
If you can make french toast then you can easily make this simple recipe on a Sunday morning. Really, this recipe is so easy you can make this any day of the week.
We like to make several batches and freeze our left overs. French toast freezes great and reheats in a toaster or toaster oven beautifully.
I don’t know about you, but I cook our french toast on an electric griddle. You can cook usually 6 slices at once, so it saves you a ton of time in the kitchen.
Also they are pretty inexpensive, especially around the holidays. Amazon has a few on sale right now.
You can also use a cast iron griddle if you prefer. It fits over two burners and also allows me to make several pieces of french toast at once.
I like it because it doesn’t take up any more room on my counter like an electric griddle will. Plus it stores easily in my pantry.
Use whichever you prefer. They both will make wonderful and delicious Pumpkin French Toast!
With the small army I feed every day (I have 8 kids), using a griddle makes my life just a little bit easier since I can cook many pieces at once.
Now that you are prepared with the perfect appliance, let’s learn how to make this simple pumpkin french toast recipe!
What do you need to make Pumpkin Spice French Toast?
- White Bread (Texas Toast or French Bread)
- Pumpkin Puree (We make our own pumpkin puree)
- Brown Sugar
- Pumpkin Spice (Try making your own Pumpkin Pie Spice)
- Butter (for skillet)
How to make Pumpkin french toast:
First, in a mixing bowl whisk together eggs, milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, vanilla extract and pumpkin spice until well blended.
Then transfer this egg mixture to a shallow baking dish, like a pie plate or shallow baking pan.
Next pre-heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat (or electric griddle) and then place a small pat of butter in skillet.
When the butter melts, dip a piece of sliced bread in the egg mixture allowing the mixture to absorb for a couple of seconds into the bread.
Then flip the bread over and dip the other side.
Next cook the bread in skillet or griddle until bottom is browned.
Then flip to cook other side until browned.
Finally, dust the pumpkin french toast with powdered sugar or serve with butter and syrup. Enjoy!
This recipe for Pumpkin Toast is delicious and will easily feed 6 people assuming each person gets 2 slices.
I will normally make a double batch so I can freeze it the leftovers. Freezing is awesome and a great way to help out those busy week day mornings.
Oh… don’t forget – you can make homemade syrup to make this easy recipe even more amazing! It’s also good with pure maple syrup.
The pumpkin flavors in this french toast are so yummy and perfect for a chilly Fall morning.
What type of bread is used for this delicious french toast recipe?
Generally, I use Texas toast or french bread to make this pumpkin breakfast recipe. However, this recipe is very versatile so you can use whatever type of bread you have in your pantry or your favorite type of bread.
I made this recipe with wheat bread once and it was delicious and easy. I also told myself it was a healthy version of this recipe! 🙂
Sour dough, cinnamon bread and raisin bread would also taste amazing when used in this recipe. These flavors combined with the pumpkin in this recipe would compliment each other beautifully and make a delicious Fall breakfast that I think your family will love!
Also, I like to make this recipe when I have bread that is a little stale but still edible. The egg mixture in this recipe softens the bread and gives is a great pumpkin flavor so the bread doesn’t have to be thrown out.
I love looking for ways to not waste food and turn it into a delicious and new recipe for my family.
What do you serve with this delicious breakfast recipe?
This recipe is delicious and very filling. You can easily serve this by itself topped with your favorite syrup, butter or sprinkled with powder sugar. Yummy!
If you are wanting some protein in your breakfast, I like to serve this with scrambled eggs or a serving of sausage or bacon. The addition of these items help make the breakfast a more well rounded meal for your family.
Also, I love dipping the sausage or bacon in the left over syrup on my plate. I love the sweetness that the syrup adds to them.
How do you freeze left over french toast?
French toast freezes great! I like to make at least a double batch of this recipe (or even 3-4 batches) when I make it and I freeze the leftovers so I have an easy breakfast on hand for busy and hectic weekday mornings.
To freeze the leftovers, I put them on the cooking sheet or large baking dish. Then I put them in the freezer for at least an hour on this sheet to flash freeze them so they don’t stick together in the freezer bag.
After this time, I remove the bread from the cooking sheet and store them in a freezer bag until I’m ready to serve them.
To defrost these, I remove how many slices I need from the bag for breakfast and heat them up in either a microwave or toaster oven. It really is that easy and simple to do!
Your kids will be impressed when they get to enjoy this delicious pumpkin french toast on a weekday and not just on a Saturday!
