Pumpkin Pie French Toast Bake

Hope everyone’s Christmas has been wonderful! This really is the best time of year isn’t it?

I can not tell you enough how much I love this French toast bake. It is so simple to prepare and seriously tastes like you ordered it from a great restaurant.

I love the addition of pumpkin, it is perfect for this time of year and so festive. Can’t wait for y’all to try this one! Enjoy 🙂

You can use a wide variety of breads for this recipe. I have used a big French Bread Loaf before which works lovely, but today I used this rustic little loaf which was fabulous as well. 8 ounces is all you need.


Make sure you have plenty of eggs before hand. You’ll use up 8 eggies for this recipe.


Into the bowl they go.

Add some milk.

….and the pumpkin puree. Love!

Cinnamon time!

Add some brown sugar as well.

Time to whisk it all together. Don’t you love my Mickey Whisk? I’m such a Disney nerd.

Once your egg mixture is whisked, pour it over your bread slices.

Pat the bread down so that all the pieces are covered nicely.

I like to sprinkle the top with granulated sugar.

…..and more cinnamon.

Slice a stick of butter…..I think you know where this is going.

Cube it and…..

Start placing the cute little cubes over the entire dish.

Like so 🙂  Such a happy little casserole. Bake until golden and baked through.

Ahhhhh, perfect-o!

Wait until you smell this gorgeous French toast, LOVE!

    This looks like a pretty delicious combination. I really enjoy having pumpkin for breakfast 🙂 Made some pumpkin waffles a little while back that were so good. I think I would adorn this french toast with a dollop of freshly whipped cream 🙂

    christina says:

    made this tonight it was great – made the mistake of layering it which I def. shouldn’t have done – the bottom was more like bread pudding and the top was amazing. I think I wanted it a bit sweeter, so I might try to add some stevia or other natural sweetener next time with the brown sugar and maybe some vanilla too.

    kanani says:

    This sounds delicious! Have you ever prepared it the night before and baked it in the morning?

    Aimee Holt says:

    This looks absolutely amazing and I want to make it for Christmas morning this year. I am traveling on Christmas eve, so can this be pre-made and then refrigerated over night and still be as good?
