What You Need To Make Pumpkin French Toast

  • Bread: What bread makes the best French toast? I mostly use brioche, challah, or white bread to make french toast. Use thick enough bread slices for french toast. Too thin slices will fall apart easily and if bread slices are too thick they don’t cook through completely and you will end up with raw and custardy french toast.
  • Eggs: The base of the French toast custard is milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, and sugar. Mix the eggs thoroughly with a whisk before adding the milk to prevent egg clumps in the custard.
  • Pumpkin puree: You can use canned or homemade pumpkin puree. Pumpkin puree adds a lovely autumnal flavor to the French toast.
  • Milk: Whole Milk. Adds richness and moisture.
  • Vanilla extract: Vanilla adds sweetness and flavor.
  • Brown Sugar: Brown sugar adds richness and caramel flavor to French toast.
  • Spices: Use a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger to add warmth and spice.
  • Butter: Use butter for the griddle or skillet.

 

How to Make Pumpkin French Toast

  • Cut bread into 1-inch slices but not thicker or thinner. Too thin slices will fall apart easily and if bread slices are too thick they don’t cook through completely and you will end up with raw and custardy French toast.
  • Use at least a day-old bread. If the bread slices are fresh and soft you can bake them at 200F for about 10 minutes to dry out.
  • Crack eggs in a wide shallow dish and whisk well until smooth.
  • Add milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and brown sugar.
  • Melt some butter in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • Dip each slice of bread in the custard mixture making sure all sides are covered.
  • Place in pan and repeat with the other toasts until the pan is filled but the pieces are not touching each other.
  • Turn them until both sides are golden. Transfer to a serving plate, top with butter, and drizzle with maple syrup.
