It’s that time of year where absolutely every food item known to man comes out with a pumpkin flavor (something I’m not gonna complain about). This isn’t so much a recipe as it is regular french toast made with some really awesome bread I found at the grocery store. Its kind of like cinnamon raisin bread, but instead of raisins there is pumpkin!
I just made this recipe this morning, but I am not really an organized enough cook to have taken step by step photos. Honestly you probably don’t want to see what my step by step cooking looks like. It’s mostly chaos and spilling and three timers going off at once.
Regardless this recipe is awesome, you are just going to have to trust me and my crappy iPhone picture of Pumpkin Spice Bread.
2-3 Slices of Stale or Frozen Pumpkin Spice Bread
Splash of vanilla (maybe 1/4 of a teaspoon)
Splash of milk ( approximately 1 tablespoon)
Dash of Pumpkin Pie Spice (optional)
1 Tablespoon of Butter
- Melt better over low medium heat in a frying pan or griddle.
- Meanwhile whisk together egg, vanilla, milk, and pumpkin pie spice.
- Dip bread in egg mixture. Make sure both sides are evenly coated
- Cook for 3 minutes on first side.
- Flip and cook for 2 more minutes.
- Serve with maple syrup.
I really enjoy french toast in restaurants, but rarely find versions I make at home satisfactory. This particular recipes turns out the perfect french toast consistency. The outside is nice and crispy and the inside stays yummy and soft without being soggy. I love the idea of this for a nice fall brunch with a big mug of Irish breakfast tea. Not to mention the fact it will make your kitchen smell amazing.
Hope you enjoy!
