PUMPKIN PIE FRENCH TOAST MADE WITH HOMEMADE PUMPKIN BUTTER
Pumpkin pie french toast made with homemade pumpkin butter screams fall! This is hands down my most favorite time of year ever! The leaves are falling off the trees, the sunsets are like a sparkling ember, and the moons are spectacular!
The weather is in the ’80s and there are pumpkins everywhere you look. Afternoon coffee is a must-have and so is all things pumpkin. And you know what you need when the colors are beautiful embers and caramel outside?
You need my Pumpkin Pie French Toast for breakfast so you can start the day off on the right foot. Pumpkin pie french toast made with homemade pumpkin butter is super easy to make and take less than 10-minutes to prep. You can also use day-old bread, which makes the French toast taste even better!
USE ANY BREAD FOR THIS EASY FRENCH TOAST RECIPE
For this recipe, I’m going non-traditional with my French toast. Normally, I use brioche bread, which is wonderful for any French toast recipe, but the average person doesn’t typically have brioche bread lying around on their kitchen counter.
For this recipe, I wanted to use bread that most people already have at home and that’s sourdough. Sourdough is delicious when used for French toast because it really makes the flavors pop.
USE REAL PUMPKIN, NO PUMPKIN FLAVORING HERE
There are a million pumpkin spice recipes on the Internet right now, but mine is different. In recipes on Fitty Foodlicious, we create recipes using REAL pumpkin. Insert all jaws dropping here. No fake pumpkin spice syrups around these parts!
In this recipe, we are using real organic pumpkin puree. I LOVE pumpkin puree and the minute it hits the shelves at Trader Joe’s; I buy an entire case of it. It’s actually really hard to find organic pumpkin puree at a good price, so I buy it right away.
ALL THE THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH PUMPKIN PUREE
Here are just a few things you can do with fresh pumpkin puree. Add it to breakfast recipes like my Pumpkin Pie French Toast. Make a beauty mask out of it (recipe for that coming soon!) add it to your morning bulletproof coffee.
I add a heaping scoop to my bulletproof coffee (stay tuned for a pumpkin coffee recipe going live here later this week) because is so good for you. I’ve said this on my blog before and I’ll reiterate it again, fresh pumpkin is wonderful for your health, digestive system, skin, and managing hormones.
It’s full of Zinc and zinc is wonderful for managing your cycle’s ladies! It’s also an imperative mineral for when you are wanting a family. So get your pumpkin eating on and enjoy this bountiful season full of lovely possibilities.
This is one of the easiest breakfasts you could make. All you’ll need for this recipe is pumpkin puree, half-n-half, eggs, cream, pumpkin spice, and sourdough bread or bread of choice.
You’ll also need a baking dish for the French toast batter. This recipe is extra special because I’ve also included how to make easy, homemade pumpkin butter.
Pumpkin butter is so delicious, especially on thick slices of pumpkin pie French toast.
I also created a recipe video to show you guys just how easy it is to Pumpkin Pie French Toast and will share the link here as soon as it’s live!
