Pumpkin French Toast

Crisp autumn mornings and Pumpkin French Toast go hand in hand.

Total Time:
4-6 Servings


French Toast
  • 4 Eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • kosher salt
  • 1 loaf brioche, sliced into 1″ thick slices
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, divided
Pumpkin Butter
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, slightly softened
  • 2 tbsp. pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. pumpkin spice
  • kosher salt
  • Powdered sugar, for sprinkling
  • Maple syrup, for drizzling


  1. In a shallow baking dish, whisk eggs with milk, pumpkin, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and a pinch of salt. Place bread slices into the pumpkin custard mixture and let soak, about 30 seconds per side.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Cook 2 slices bread at a time until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Repeat to cook all slices.
  3. Make pumpkin butter: in a medium bowl, whip together softened butter with pumpkin, maple syrup, pumpkin spice, and a pinch of salt until light and fluffy.
  4. Top French toast with pumpkin butter, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and drizzle with maple syrup.
