I found this pumpkin recipe I just had to share. I really do think the pumpkin added a great flavor. Maybe it was the spices. I added just a tiny bit of cloves to the recipe. I made it several weeks ago when I was vacationing in the beautiful mountains in West Virginia with my wonderful Wine Women of West Virginia.
I thought you all might like it. Let me know
Pumpkin French Toast
Yield: About 9 slices
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 4 eggs
- 2 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 9 slices Texas toast (or other white bread such as Challah or French bread)
- Butter, for griddle
- Preheat an electric griddle to 350 degrees (a non-stick skillet set over medium heat also works fine). In a mixing bowl whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger until well combined. Pour into a shallow dish.
- Butter griddle and dip bread into egg mixture (allowing a few seconds for it to absorb mixture. I also squeeze gently to soak the mixture to center), then rotate and coat opposite side. Transfer to griddle and cook until golden brown on bottom, then lift, butter griddle once more and flip french toast to opposite side and cook until golden brown. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
