Today’s pumpkin recipe is for breakfast. It would be perfect to make for a weekend breakfast. This baked pumpkin French toast is just like the recipe I have share before for streusel topped French toast bake. You just mix pumpkin into the French toast batter.
The batter is a combination off milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and pumpkin. This is combined and poured over a diced up loaf of French bread. Then it goes in the fridge for a few hours but preferably overnight. I have made it during the day and put in the fridge for dinner. However, I love to make it on a Saturday night to enjoy on a lazy Sunday morning.
Now comes the best part of this recipe. When you take this out of the fridge to bake, it all gets topped with a streusel mixture. The streusel mixture is a combination of butter, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. I just put it all in my food processor and pulse until it’s the right consistency. It is the best streusel ever! Then it’s time to bake this Baked Pumpkin French Toast! In about 1 hour you will be enjoying a delicious fall version of a favorite breakfast dish.Print
