Who doesn’t like french toast? This time of year, I like to switch it up and add my favorite…pumpkin spice! I make enough to last us a few mornings. We just pop any leftovers in the refrigerator and then heat it up as we need it. The kids think it’s a great alternative to cereal on school mornings! I like to top it with some Pumpkin Spice Butter. This is great melted on bagels as well!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2c canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • approximately 12 slices of bread (any type of bread you have)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2/3c milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

For the Pumpkin Butter:

  • 1tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2tsp. canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2c butter (room temperature-salted or unsalted)
  • 3tbsp. maple syrup-can also use honey

Instructions:

  • pre-heat an electric griddle to medium heat (you can also cook on a stove top but I prefer my griddle)
  • using a bowl or a baking dish, wish together the pumpkin puree, vanilla, eggs, milk, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
  • dip one slice of bread into the mixture at time and evenly coat all sides of the bread and carefully place it on the warmed griddle
  • let it cook until it’s golden brown (usually 2-4 minutes on each side)
  • continue until all of the bread is used up

For the pumpkin butter:

  • use a hand mixer to beat softened butter until it’s nice and fluffy (a few minutes)
  • add remaining ingredients and continue beating until it’s blended and all fluffy

***I like to store my pumpkin butter in a mason jar (any air-tight container will work but I love mason jars) Keep it in the refrigerator for up to a week. We really enjoy using this on bagels and toast!

I hope you enjoy this as we wrap up our last week of “Pumpkin Spice Everything” and head over to “Peppermint Everything” season! haha
