Gosh, this is the best French Toast I’ve ever made! For a perfect Fall, breakfast gives this a try and I’m pretty sure you’ll get hooked in a heartbeat. You’ll love the sweetness, that perfect spice, topped with a super easy homemade whipped pumpkin butter.

INGREDIENTS

4 eggs
2/3 cup milk – (whole, low-fat or skim)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
12 slices Texas toast – OR french bread, OR challah, OR croissant halves

WHIPPED PUMPKIN BUTTER:

1/2 cup salted or unsalted butter – ( 1 stick), room temperature
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
3 tbsp maple syrup – or honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN FRENCH TOAST

Step 1: Melt a little amount of butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Step 2: Add the eggs, milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a rectangular baking dish. Whisk well.

Step 3: Then, dip each piece of bread into the mixture on both sides before putting into the hot skillet with melted butter.

Step 4: Cook the bread for approximately 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Do this for the rest of the ingredients.

Step 5: Serve the toasts hot with whipped pumpkin butter, maple syrup, and some toasted chopped nuts.

For the pumpkin butter:

Step 1: Add the softened butter in a small mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to beat for about 2 minutes or until light and fluffy.

Step 2: Then, add in the pumpkin puree, maple syrup or honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. Continue beating for a minute more or until fluffy.

Step 3: Place in an air-tight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Notes:

For a sweeter french toast, add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the mixture.
