Pumpkin Cardamom French Toast

We admit it - we get caught up in the pumpkin hysteria each Fall too. But, the same old pumpkin spices can get old fast, so this weekend we whipped up some pumpkin french toast with the exotic influence of cardamom and ginger. Give this Pumpkin Cardamom French Toast recipe a try and let us know what you think!


1/2 c. canned pumpkin
3 eggs
3/4 c. whole milk
1 t. cinnamon
3.4 t. cardamom
1/4 t. ginger
1 t. vanilla
1 loaf of white bread, cut into thick slices (We used sourdough and the tartness was a nice off-set to the sweetness of the pumpkin and syrup, but it's not for everyone)
Cooking spray
Maple syrup & butter for serving


1. In a square Pyrex pan mix pumpkin through vanilla, being sure the eggs get well incorporated. (We find the square pan makes it easier to submerge a couple of pieces of bread at a time.)
2. Preheat a skillet or griddle. Spray lightly with cooking spray, if needed. 
3. Slice the bread into thick (around 1") slices.
4. Place bread in the delicious pumpkin batter. Once saturated to your liking, place on the hot griddle. Cook until brown; flip and cook on that side as well. 
5. Spread on some butter and drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy.
