Pumpkin French Toast Bake

{Written by: Jen}

Okay, okay, I’ll admit it. I have a pumpkin addiction. Pumpkin freaking everything; pumpkin coffee, pumpkin cake, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin, cookies….and now pumpkin french toast. I had a left over almost whole loaf of french bread and lots of pumpkin on hand, so I thought I would give it a shot, I found the recipe here. It. was. ah.mazing! I will be making this over and over and over again. I ate 3 portions and no, I’m not sorry.

Even Taylor thought it sounded good, here she is scoping out the goods (sorry for the blurry pic).

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Keep following us, there will no doubt be more pumpkin goods to come!

    • Do you make your pumpkin bread from scratch? I have a box of the Pilsbury Pumpkin Bread mix but haven’t tried it yet. I once tried the pumpkin and chocolate chip combo, I wasn’t a big fan but I think that is because the recipe called for a lot of ginger – it just didn’t mesh well.

      • I have yet to make the pumpkin bread from scratch. I mean, I use canned pumpkin, not fresh. This pumpkin chocolate chip one is really simple (it uses canned as well) and doesn’t have any ginger.

Your two cents....
