Pumpkin French Toast is our current weekend treat/breakfast. Pumpkin works its magic with cinnamon and bread.
I paired these delicious French toasts with whipped cream, fresh berries, and a cup of coffee. What an excellent start to the day!
I like it a tad bit more than the regular French toast. Pumpkin adds to the flavor and color. The choice of bread is essential. I love using Brioche bread, Challah and occasionally use the regular milk bread. For this recipe, I used Brioche bread.
The warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger take me to a happy place in my mind. My grandma made French toast for me. She would make them for guests and save a few slices for me. We enjoyed them as such or with some honey.
I hope you do try this easy recipe and surprise your family over the weekend morning.
