Pumpkin Pie French Toast, or the Hope of Autumn
Recipe type: Breakfast

Serves: 4
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ cup canned pumpkin
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp. grated nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 8 small slices bread (I use Whole Wheat Tuscan Pane from Trader Joe's, cut in half. It's kind of like a dense ciabatta. I usually make French toast with whatever whole wheat sandwich bread is sitting around the house)
  • Butter
  • Toppings -- maple syrup or golden syrup (my favorite)
  1. In a wide and shallow bowl, beat the eggs lightly with a fork. Add the pumpkin, cream, maple syrup, spices and salt, and stir to combine. Soak the slices of bread in the egg mixture, flipping to ensure that both sides absorb the eggs.
  2. Melt some butter on a griddle or nonstick skillet, and saute each slice of soaked bread in the melted butter, flipping when the first side is brown - 1-2 minutes per side. Serve warm with additional maple syrup or golden syrup or your french toast topping of choice.
