How pretty are these pumpkin french toast triangles? Just do me a favor and try to look past the amount of syrup that is on this plate.
One of the first cookbooks that I bought for myself was about sneaking wholesome veggies into your everyday food. I ended up only making one recipe out of the whole entire book. It was a recipe that hid sweet potato puree in the french toast batter. I never was really into the whole “sneaking” bit but I did make them quite a bit, with full disclosure that there was indeed sweet potato in there, and my girls still loved them. Which, now that I think about it, is pretty surprising.
Being that it’s fall and with my youngest having a friend sleep over this past weekend, I decided to make not-so-sneaky pumpkin french toast. I wasn’t sure how these would go over so I made two kinds. Over achiever much? Yep that’s me. I made your basic, milk-egg-vanilla french toast and this pumpkin french toast version. I inhaled the pumpkin french toast like my life depended on it, the girls gave me two thumbs up on as well. They are just SO good.
I melted pads of butter over top, drizzled them with real maple syrup and dusted with powdered sugar and a little extra pumpkin spice.
Fall on a plate is what these are.
In a wide and somewhat shallow bowl whisk together 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree, 1 tablespoon of pumpkin spice and vanilla extract.
While whisking, add in the milk.
Quickly dip the bread into the pumpkin mixture and place onto your preheated and greased (I use coconut oil) griddle.
Once the underneath is deeply golden brown (about 3 to 4 minutes) flip and continue to cook. Transfer the pumpkin french toast to a rimmed sheet pan and slide into your oven to keep warm. Just be sure the center is cooked and not gooey.
I sliced the pumpkin french toast in half diagonally and served them with butter, real maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar and a pinch extra pumpkin spice.
I’m so in love!
