This pumpkin french toast is super easy to make, and incredibly delicious. It’s the perfect fall breakfast!
If there’s one food my baby girl Bee can’t get enough of, it’s french toast! She eats it for breakfast several days a week (I just make a big batch and keep the leftovers in the fridge for her) and she loves to eat it with bananas or fresh berries. I usually make her french toast very simple (just eggs and bread) but occasionally it’s fun to branch out and make something special for Saturday breakfast for the family. This pumpkin french toast is a favorite this time of year! It has a super delicious pumpkin spice flavor, and best of all, it’s easy to make!
I’ve used both Texas toast and challah to make this french toast, and it’s delicious either way! You’ll definitely want a thicker slice of bread than a typical sandwich loaf. It’s also totally fantastic with homemade french bread. We usually keep it simple with just butter and syrup on top of the french toast, but if I’m feeling extra fancy, this homemade cinnamon buttermilk syrup is over-the-top delicious with it. This pumpkin french toast is a fall favorite!
