Pumpkin French Toast


The other day I was mindlessly wandering around the grocery store when I spied a loaf of pumpkin bread.

Snatching it up, I rushed home, thinking it was the cake-kind of quick pumpkin bread and started thinking about how glorious it would taste.

When I opened the package I realized it was a wonderful yeasty bread redolent with cinnamon.

Heaven! It was heaven in a plastic wrapper.

The next morning I promptly made it into French toast with cinnamon butter.

I think my taste buds may still be cheering a bit. Either that, or begging for an encore.

This recipe is super easy and fast.



Mix egg, milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a shallow dish large enough to hold the bread. This square dish works perfectly!

Dip bread in batter, but don’t let it soak, it will get soggy and gross in a hurry. Just dip one side, flip and do the other side.

Fry in skillet until brown on both sides. It just takes a few minutes over medium heat. You can also bake at 350 for about 12 minutes. I like to flip the bread over halfway if I’m baking so it gets firm on both sides.

Mix softened butter with a dash of cinnamon then slather over warm toast.

Pumpkin French Toast

Loaf of Pumpkin Bread, sliced

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp. vanilla

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tbsp. butter


This will make approximately 6 pieces.

Beat eggs, then add in milk, vanilla and 1 tsp. cinnamon. If you want to get really into the spirit of  things, you could add a dash of pumpkin pie spice. Dip bread slices into batter quickly. You don’t want them to get soggy.

You can either pan-fry in a skillet (coat with non-stick spray and just a little butter) or bake in a 350 degree oven until brown and crispy outside.

Mix butter with remaining cinnamon and plop onto toast. Smother in maple syrup and devour!
