The ultimate comfort breakfast classic with a decadent twist, for a cosy weekend breakfast is everything you need from a post-hangover meal.
Breakfast being the most important meal during the day, is often overlooked due to our busy schedules or a lack of inclination to fix ourselves a satisfying meal. These days, coffee or a smoothie has become the fuel that keeps everyone running around until lunchtime, leaving us little to no opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of a solid breakfast. French toasts are a quintessential American diner staple that is extremely simple to make and indulgent when topped up with berries, whipped cream and syrup.
This pumpkin French toast recipe is perfect for a sinful weekend treat, when slow and relaxed cooking is in order. The key to making a great French toast lies in buying good bread and infusing it with the richness of cream, milk and winter spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. Using good quality ingredients makes a huge difference in the taste of your final output. If you can’t happen to find canned pumpkin puree for the recipe, just boil or steam some orange pumpkin in a pressure cooker and blitz in a food processor. You can use any kind of bread for the recipe but the ideal varieties would be a rich, eggy brioche or a delicious loaf of day-old milk bread.
Note: You can also bake a big batch of these on a sheet tray by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and baking it for 15 minutes.
