A fall morning should start with this Pumpkin French Toast! Each slice is perfectly coated with pumpkin and fall spices then drizzled with a sweet and warm cinnamon syrup. You’ll want to eat this french toast all year long.
I’m that person who gets their kids off to school in mid-August then pulls the fall decor out of storage the second they step on the bus. That person who, on the night of August 31st, is checking the clock to see how much time is left till midnight when all things turn into pumpkin spice. Fall is my favorite time of year! I can’t wait to light my fall candles and add pumpkin puree to all things. This case was no different when we made Pumpkin French Toast with Cinnamon Syrup. If you could take a bite out of fall, it would taste just like this french toast. Perfectly spiced and sweet with a lovely flavor combined with cinnamon syrup. It’s a beautiful thing!
There will be zero judgment if you make the syrup and it doesn’t make it to the french toast. It’s delicious! But you’ll want to save some to drench on this french toast. It is SO good.
