Author Tiffany


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • syrup, powdered sugar, or cinnamon-sugar for serving
  • 8 slices thick white bread Texas toast or sliced brioche bread are my favorites


  • Preheat a skillet or griddle to medium heat.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar, and pumpkin puree.
  • Melt one tablespoon of butter on your preheated skillet/griddle and spread it out to cover as much of the pan as possible. While butter is melting, dredge a slice of bread in the pumpkin mixture, tossing to coat all sides.
  • Transfer soaked bread to the pan. Repeat with 1-2 pieces of bread (as much as you have room for in your pan). Cook each for 2-3 minutes, flip and cook another 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
  • Transfer to a plate, cover to keep warm, and repeat process until all of your bread/pumpkin mixture is used up. (Melt another tablespoon of butter between each batch)
  • Serve warm with syrup, cinnamon-sugar, and powdered sugar (I like to use all three!) as desired.


Makes about 8 pieces of french toast. My husband and I usually eat two each, and the kids eat one each, so it can feed 4-6 people depending on their appetites.
