Now, as you all know, I am all about dessert and this time of year is the best time to get your taste buds going on something sweet and delicious. As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, I can not stop thinking about all the pie I will be eating, YUM! Though pie is great, sometimes you just don’t have enough time to bake a whole pie when the craving kicks in. Today I will be sharing with you a recipe to fulfill your craving and have dessert for breakfast! Pumpkin french toast will be be like having pie without all the work and topped with a maple butter that is so good and easy to make.
For the French Toast:
Bread: I like to make it with brioche because I like my french toast thick but you can honestly make it with regular sandwich bread if thats all you have on hand
2/3 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1/3 Cup Whole Milk
2 Tsp Cinnamon (or more depending on how cinnamon-y you like it lol)
2 Tsp Pumpkin Spice
1 Tsp Vanilla
And some extra butter for your pan
For the Maple Butter:
1/2 Cup Softened unsalted butter
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tbs Maple syrup
Powdered sugar for dusting at the end
1. Grab a deep plate and add in your eggs, milk, pumpkin, cinnamon, pumpkin spice and vanilla and whisk it all together to make your wet mixture.
2. Add some butter to your pan over medium heat
3. Grab your bread and dip it to your wet mixture and make sure you flip it to evenly cover both sides.
4. Add your bread to your pan and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. I personally like my french toast to be a little crispy so I wait a little longer until it starts to look nice and crispy.
5. With your spatula remove your bread onto a plate and repeat until all of your wet mixture has been used.
For the Maple Butter:
1. In a small bowl mix together your softened butter, maple syrup and cinnamon. You can use a fork to whip it all together or if you are making a big batch you can put it in your stand mixer and use your paddle attachment.
Once your french toast is cooked add a scoop of maple butter and dust some powdered sugar on top to your liking and I promise you will not be disappointed.
This is perfect for when you’re craving something sweet and pumpkiny (is this a word? probably not but it definitely should be lol!)
