Pumpkin French Toast with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin French toast is the perfect breakfast to welcome fall. A simple batter made of pumpkin purée, eggs, heavy cream, and pumpkin spice makes a decadent French toast; while the maple cream cheese drizzle takes the dish over the top!

If you’re a Fall person who loves Fall flavors like me, you will definitely enjoy this pumpkin French toast!

The Batter

Pumpkin French Toast Batter

To make the French toast batter, add canned pumpkin purée, eggs, heavy cream, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and sugar to a shallow bowl. Mix well until completely combined and lump free. The batter is ready!

The Frying

Fry Pumpkin French Toast in Salted Butter

Melt a tablespoon (or two) of salted butter in a heavy bottom pan on medium heat. Once the butter is melted, dip sliced bread in the pumpkin batter and coat both sides well.

Fry the pumpkin French toast in the butter on medium low, flipping so both sides can get crispy and golden. It’s important to keep the heat low because the sugar and butter can burn easily.

The Maple Cream Cheese Drizzle

As the pumpkin French toast cooks, put together the maple cream cheese. Combine whipped cream cheese (regular will also work but it will be a little extra work to mix it in) with maple syrup and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Mix well until it’s lump free.

Assembling the French Toast

Place all the pumpkin French toast on a serving plate. Drizzle or spread on the maple cream cheese. Sprinkle on powdered sugar. And finally, pour over a little extra maple syrup. Enjoy!
