Pumpkin French Toast

Overnight French Toast Recipe – Pumpkin

We made this recipe up ourselves one evening in the kitchen when we had a can of pumpkin and we were making our french toast casserole recipe. We decided that for a Fall treat, it would be nice to make it pumpkin pie french toast and so this recipe was born. I’ve tried it a couple of different ways since we first made it, but this is the easiest and tastiest way to make it. This makes one casserole, but we double it to make two. (remember I’m feeding five hungry teenagers here.)

  17. Remove from oven and serve hot. Sprinkle with some powdered sugar if you want. This can also be served with syrup, butter, whipped cream or just eaten plain. It is delicious!

    This is great. I’ve been looking to make a baked french toast recipe, but didn’t want the usual, apple or maple syrup flavors. It’s nice that you tested it for us. I would have to half the recipe because I have just one daughter, so it’s the three of us.

    I like your blog too!

    Big hit with my family! Great recipe- I was out of brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice, so I mixed white sugar and molasses then added ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon to make my own. Turned out great!

        molasses is what is stripped from sugar, so i fyou have white sugar and molasses you have the recipe for brown sugar naturally. I tried mine with coconut milk and it was very early in the morning so I may put too many eggs or too much coconut milk taking a while to cook but sure it will be delish just the same as the bread is cinnamon roll bread from our vt local famers market truly and artisan bread

    Just made this — absolutely totally completely delicious!! i used challa bread with raisins and it was awesome!! even though pumpkin is an “autumn food,” i don’t think it should ever be restricted to a certain time of year!!

    I found this via Pinterest Saturday and made it Saturday night for a Sunday brunch and it was fantastic! I was a little nervous to try a recipe for the first time among strangers, but it was absolutely dynamite and people requested the recipe. Cheers!
