Cinnamon Pumpkin French Toast

Share this Recipe!

We’ve hit day 2 of #PumpkinWeek 2018 and I couldn’t be more excited about all of these recipes. Today I am serving up a big platter of Cinnamon Pumpkin French Toast.

Cinnamon Pumpkin French Toast
It’s an EASY peasy recipe that can be made up the night before and baked to perfection in the morning. Each serving is a like a hearty, pumpkin cinnamon filled sandwich but so much better.

Our whole family adores this Cinnamon Pumpkin French Toast and we have so much fun changing it up for the season.

I’d like to give another great big shout out to Dixie Crystals, Cabot Creamery Co-operative and Eggland’s Best for sending products and coupons to help facilitate all these fun recipes posted this week! Without you, it just wouldn’t be the same.

Exceptional products, exceptional brands. THANK YOU!!

Cinnamon Pumpkin French Toast

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 4 hours
Cook Time: 45 minutes 30 seconds
Total Time: 4 hours 55 minutes 30 seconds

Easy Cinnamon Pumpkin French Toast is made the night before and popped into the oven in the morning for a hearty, delicious Fall breakfast


  • ½ cup Cabot unsalted butter
  • 12 slices thick bread
  • ½ cup Dixie Crystals brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 Eggland's Best eggs
  • 1½ cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt the butter and pour into a 9×13 baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and the cinnamon.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla extract.
  5. Spread a thin layer of pumpkin puree (as if you were buttering a piece of bread) on top of six slices of the bread.
  6. Layer the 6 pieces of bread, pumpkin side up, into the baking dish on top of the melted butter.
  7. Next, sprinkle half of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over the top of the pumpkin that is spread on the bread.
  8. Now, spread a thin layer of pumpkin puree same as above on the remaining six pieces of bread.
  9. Place each slice on top of the other slices making a sandwich AGAIN with pumpkin side UP.
  10. Sprinkle again with the cinnamon/brown sugar mixture.
  11. Pour the egg mixture over the top of all of it and then sprinkle more brown sugar and cinnamon over the top, if desired.
  12. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 4 hours. Honestly, the longer the better.
  13. When you're ready to serve, cover the dish with tinfoil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, uncover the dish and bake an additional 15 more minutes. It should be golden and set.
  14. 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!
