Pumpkin Bread French Toast
This is definitely a favorite way to enjoy Pumpkin Bread… especially on cozy weekends during the holiday season! This works as a casual family breakfast and is also totally brunch worthy.
Making French Toast from quick bread is nothing new here – our longtime readers might remember the Zucchini Bread French Toast of 2012.
The next year, our Savory Broccoli Cheddar French Toast stretched the rules in the best of ways. Mmm.
Make Ahead Recipes
There are two components of this Pumpkin Bread French Toast recipe, and they can both be made ahead for a super quick and easy breakfast – even on our busy weekdays.
The Cashew Custard takes about one minute to make. It makes a tasty sauce for so many things though, so I like to make it ahead or save any leftovers there might be. (I have made this recipe enough times that I can safely say there rarely is leftover custard, and if there is, I simply pour it over the already cooked French toast for another coat, and flip again to cook.
I learned that several layer French toast method from my Grandpa Z. He always made the best French toast. He is probably the reason I love it so much.
The other component to this Pumpkin Bread French Toast is the Pumpkin Bread itself! I recommend French toasting it after it is a few days old, if it lasts that long! The soft fluffy brand new pumpkin bread is equally delicious, though.
Make a loaf or two a day or two before, and enjoy this warming breakfast this weekend!
