Cooking Classy, you have done it again. Seriously guys, this is one of my favorite food blogs ever, because every single one of Jaclyn's recipes are a total win. Like this mouthwatering pumpkin french toast, made with real pumpkin puree, fall spices, and thick, fluffy slices of bread. Can it get better than this, I ask, on a chilly fall morning? I'll take two (helpings, not slices. Teehee) and a steaming café latté. Happy to have you back, Fall :)
Cooking Classy's Jaclyn recommends serving warm with butter and maple syrup. I personally love the idea of adding a dollop of whipped cream too ;)
Pumpkin French Toast
Prep Time: Cook Time: Difficulty:
Recipe adapted from Cooking Classy // Photos by Cooking Classy
Makes about 9 slices
What You'll Need
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
2 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
9 slices Texas toast (or other white bread such as Challah or French bread)
Butter, for griddle
1. Preheat your cooking surface (if it's an electric griddle, turn it to 350°F; or if you're cooking on the stove, place a nonstick skillet over medium heat).
2. Combine milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until evenly combined.
3. After making sure griddle is well-buttered, dip slice of bread into egg mixture, allowing a few seconds for it to soak all the way through. Flip to coat both sides.
4. Cook until golden brown, then flip and do the same on the opposite side. For extra super yumminess, re-butter griddle between flips.
Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream and a side of maple syrup! :)
