pumpkin french toast

You thought (hoped?) I was done with pumpkin recipes, didn’t you? I thought so too, but yesterday morning, when the kids asked for French toast, I couldn’t resist. French toast is always good, but pumpkin French toast is especially delicious and pleasantly fragrant, thanks to the pumpkin and the spices.

Makes 4 servings

Total time: 20 minutes
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes

1 large egg
1/2 cup reduced-fat milk
1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 tablespoon whole-wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cloves
4 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, cut in half on the diagonal
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 cup maple syrup

1. In a shallow, 9 X 13 baking dish, whisk together the egg, milk, pumpkin puree, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, until mixture is smooth. Place the bread slices in the dish and allow them to soak the mixture, 2 minutes on each side.

2. After turning the bread slices to the second side, heat a double-burner griddle or two large skillets over medium heat, about 3 minutes.

3. Add the butter to the hot griddle and brush to coat. Cook the coated bread slices until golden-brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Serve immediately, with warm maple syrup.
