Tastes Like Fall


Today has been quite a lazy day, but it started out on a delicious note! 

Fall is my favorite season, and I am SO READY for it to get here.  I know I have quite a while before we (in Florida) feel the first cool breeze or open our windows to let in the brisk outside air, but I thought I could at least start tasting the flavors of fall since it doesn’t feel like it (yet).

This morning, we had a can of pumpkin and a loaf of cinnamon swirl bread in our pantry just begging to be used…therefore, I introduce to you:




Pumpkin Cinnamon French Toast

Print this recipe!

  • 8 slices bread of choice (cinnamon swirl, brioche, wheat, etc)
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

-nonstick spray for cooking
-butter and syrup for serving

Combine the pumpkin, eggs, milk and spices to a baking dish or bowl for dipping.  Whisk into a smooth batter.  Preheat griddle to medium high heat spray with nonstick spray just before putting French toast down on the first side.

Soak both sides of the bread in the pumpkin batter.  Place on griddle and cook on both sides until golden, 3-4 minutes per side.




Serve hot with butter and syrup (or even a dollop of peanut butter!).  If making a large(r) batch, place in a 300 degree oven covered with tin foil to keep warm when preparing the other batch.
