Pumpkin Bread French Toast

7 reviews / 5 average

Today’s post is sponsored by Nespresso! We are superfans of their coffee, especially with Pumpkin Bread French Toast.  🙌


And then I made pumpkin bread French toast and ate it with a creamy cup of Nespresso coffee. And by a creamy cup, I mean three creamy cups.

I mean, what else? It’s all just too easy and too wonderful.

This pumpkin bread French toast is the answer to your question: what does a person do with two full loaves of the most delicious pumpkin bread, especially when you only have two people living in your house?

Part one of the answer for us was a delivery of pumpkin bread to our neighbors ♡ because our neighbors are the best people ever, and because sharing is caring, and because sharing is portion control.

And part two of the answer was taking the remaining half loaf in the fridge and making it into something that screamed brunch! cozy! fall! happy early holidays! on an overcast, chilly Saturday morning – the kind of Saturday where you might just opt for pajamas until noon and then feel a teensy bit embarrassed when the UPS truck shows up and you actually have to answer the door and face the world, but not so embarrassed that it’s going to compel you to actually get dressed or stop you from wearing pajamas till noon in the future. So essentially, like, every Saturday. Or every day.

This is how we do, yknow?

I didn’t mean to be this meta, but things are about to come full circle: I actually am drinking a Nespresso (sip) this morning (sip) as I write this post (sip). Winning?

Bjork and I have used and loved the Nespresso VertuoLine machine for the last two years. You can see my first post about it —> right here – now I have the VertuoLine Evoluo which is the latest version in the collection. I first fell in love with the VertuoLine based solely on the fact that it enabled me to feed my addiction of both strong coffee and excellent espresso drinks without needing to drive to a coffee shop – PLUS I could control the type and amount of sugar and the quality of milk or cream and other important prissy-type things like that that are important to me.

Nespresso does coffee really, really well 👉 they not only produce the highest quality coffee sourced from the top 1-2% of coffee beans IN THE WORLD 😳, but also, as a company, they are huge advocates for sustainability and recyclability. Yes, kids: I said recyclability. Their capsules are recyclable (!!) which is a big-time win in our book. This is something that has, in the past, kept us from embracing single serve coffee makers, but now we just keep a big bag of the used capsules in our garage and then periodically bring it to our local collection point. And we drink a strong, rich, delicious coffee while doing it.

Also: the crema on top. Do I even need to talk about it? Oh, the magic. There is no substitute.

In my food-life-meets-real-life, there are only three kitchen appliances that I love enough to haul up to the cabin with me every summer: my food processor, my blender, and my Nespresso. On the best cabin afternoons, we sit around on lounge chairs and read books in the sun and I pass out sweet milky iced coffee and espresso drinks for everyone with cutesy polka dotted paper straws. Every year when I walk in hauling (read: struggling to haul) my box of kitchen machines, there are a few eye rolls and ha-ha-look-at-the-food-blogger laughs, but when those milky iced coffees start getting passed around, the haters come around and suddenly, yes, they would love to try an iced coffee, thank you very much.

The definition of woodsy cabin life should always include espresso drinks. 💁☕️

Onwards into the fall vibes now! Today I’m showing off what I did with yesterday’s pumpkin bread, which was to slice it up, soak it in eggs and cream and vanilla, and fry it up nice and golden brown so I could drizzle some syrup over the top and call it fall Saturday brunch.

Friends. The texture here is just… I mean… just look at this.

Soft and dense on the inside, golden brown and crispy on the outside, and so perfect with a rich Nespresso coffee topped with crema. 👌

Description

Pumpkin Bread French Toast – easy recipe with eggs, milk, vanilla, and a few pieces of pumpkin bread. Golden brown, sticky sweet brunch perfection.


Ingredients

Scale
  • half a loaf of pumpkin bread, sliced thickly (about 6 pieces)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • a splash of vanilla

Instructions

  1. Whisk the eggs, milk, and vanilla together. Heat a nonstick or oiled skillet over medium high heat.

    This is what fall breakfast perfection looks like! Dying over how delicious this pumpkin bread french toast looks! Can it be tomorrow morning already? Because this is totally what I’m making for breakfast!

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Mine too! I am having the coffee (again, always) this morning but dang, that French toast would be nice for a Tuesday too. 🙂

    Is it cliché to say yum? I don’t care because this recipe looks the YUMMMiest ever. My partner a pancake guy, I am a French Toast gal, but with this recipe I think that he will be too full off the French toast to eat his words as well.

    p.s. I rejoined Food Blogger Pro and I am loving it!! I listen to your podcast while I am cooking my recipes to keep my head in the game. Thank you so much for creating this service and community.

      I am so glad to hear that Jessica! So fun to have you in the community and I do the same thing with the FBP podcast – is that weird? 🙂 Haha!

    I haven’t had french toast in such a long time! (ok, fine, it’s been a little more than a week…) But pumpkin bread takes it to a whole new level!!

    Does the America become obsessed with pumpkin every ‘fall’, or is it just a food blogger thing? This is a genuine question – unless I’m missing something major, nobody makes a big deal of pumpkins here in the UK, except on Halloween…
    However this recipe does look amazing, so I may just have to investigate the power of the pumpkin!






    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Haha – such a funny question. yes, I think a lot of Americans love pumpkin, especially in the fall! I don’t think it’s just a food blogger thing. 🙂

    Oh my dear goodness!!! Everything looks so delicious! And comforting. And wonderful. I gave up coffee this past summer because I only like the “prissy” kind and it’s not an affordable habit for my wallet or my waistline 😉 But this is definitely making me want it again… and again… and again! With pumpkin bread French toast! Thanks so much!!!

    Just chanced upon your blog today and I’ve been reading the whole day Haha. I’ll try this french toast recipe tomorrow even though its spring here down under

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      I feel like I would love it. It definitely has a denser texture than traditional French toast but that’s sort of what I love about it!

    I feel the same way about my Nespresso! Here in Dallas, we have a Nespresso store and you can go and try the different pods, its pretty fab!

    It’s like you took something already awesome (French toast) and then you made it awesomer (pumpkin bread!?!?!?) and then you made it EVEN AWESOMER (COFFEE!?!?!?). PS my spell check is telling me that awesomer isn’t a work but I don’t know, I think it applies.

    Ok, I don’t even drink coffee, but nobody has ever made me crave it more! That shot of the creamy splash in the cup… perfection! And pumpkin – we all know there’s no such thing this time of year, right?! This looks amazing Lindsay! Totally perfect for the weekend. And on a side note, I hear you on the slight embarrassment during UPS deliveries. I’m sure those guys have seen it all!

    1. Pinch of Yum Logo

      Thanks Angela! Took us a few practice runs to get that just right, but … neither of us are complaining about that. 😉
