I can never choose between French toast or pancakes.

Sometimes, it’s pancakes. Other times, it’s French toast. It really depends on my mood, I guess.

But when it comes to Fall pumpkin spice French toast, pancakes do not stand a chance. Nope, none at all.

Pumpkin French toast will win every single time.

With the super thick brioche (or Challah bread) slices that just soak up every single ounce of pumpkin heaven, these are simply perfect.

All you need is a fresh dusting of confectioners’ sugar and syrup.

Sorry, pancakes. Maybe you’ll have a shot after the Fall season.

  9. Is it supposed to be 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice or eleven half teaspoons? Logic tells me it’s probably 1 and 1/2 taps but with the lack of a space, it’s hard to tell.
