Cinnamon Pumpkin French Toast Shopping List
This is what you’ll need from the store before you make them.
- unsalted butter
- bread – any type of bread will do, we use regular sandwich bread in a pinch.
- brown sugar – while you could substitute granulated sugar for the brown sugar, it’s going to change the overall flavor of the finished recipe.
- cinnamon – if you’d like to use another spice, it’s perfectly acceptable in this recipe.
- pumpkin puree – be sure NOT to use pumpkin pie filling. It has a lot of additives that you are also adding in this recipe.

What to Serve With French Toast
It’s a traditional breakfast food so it pairs well with most things. We really like to serve it with fresh sliced fruit on the side.
Fry up some bacon or sizzle some sausage for a nice boost of protein.
I love sitting down with some and a piping hot cup of coffee and I’m good to go!
