It’s September 1st, which means it’s basically the beginning of FALL! It’s time to once again bake and make things as full of pumpkin spice as possible (except maybe SPAM which is just gross…). Let’s “toast” to the Halloween season!
I decided to welcome fall by whipping up an easy pumpkin french toast for breakfast.
Celebrate this extended holiday weekend by making some for yourself! Keep reading for the recipe.
For this recipe you’ll need:
- 3 slices of bread
- Pumpkin puree
- 1 egg
- All Spice
- Ground ginger
- Powdered sugar (optional)
- Walnuts (optional)
The first step is to create your french toast soak. Combine about 1/2 cup of milk, 2 table spoons of pumpkin puree, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon of all spice, 1/2 teaspoon clove, 1/2 teaspoon of ginger (honestly, I eyeball my spices but if I had to guess, the measurements above sound about right).
Whisk these ingredients together well. Heat up your skillet on medium-high heat with a pat of butter so that the skillet is evenly coated. Dredge the front and back of your bread slice in the soak and let any excess drip off in the bowl before transferring to the heated skillet.
Let each side get golden, toasty and fragrant on each side – about 1-2 minutes per side depending on how hot your stove top gets.
Your kitchen should start smelling like a fall wonderland in no time!
I topped my fall breakfast treat with powdered sugar, walnuts and syrup. I need all the sugar today because that start of fall is SWEET!
This recipe actually can make about 3 slices of toast depending how big your bread slices are. Serve it up with some apple breakfast sausage, eggs, hash browns, fruit, anything that sounds good…because breakfast is the best and pumpkin makes it even better!
