Pumpkin French Toast with Cinnamon Whipped Cream

More pumpkin dishes!  Are you tired of them?  I hope not because my family continues to request all things pumpkin!  The boys love it.  When I said I was making pumpkin french toast both of my boys got huge smiles on their faces.  What is it about pumpkin that gets my boys in such a happy place?  I let my oldest son Nicholas make the cinnamon whipped topping.  He was surprised at how fast you can make whipped cream. 

I started searching to look for a fantastic recipe, then realized I could just wing it.  I did look to see how much people were adding to the dish to make it taste "pumpkiny."  Yes, people acutally use that as a word.  Anyway, I figured I'd use 1/2 cup and see how it goes.  Here is what I did:  

Mix together 4 eggs, some milk (I think I use about 1/4 cup), 1/2 cup of  canned pumpkin, and a tablespoon of pumpkin pie spice.  Slice bread to dip.  I used whole wheat bakery bread that I bought yesterday.

Place the coated bread on your skillet or griddle.

 Flip after 4-5 minutes, when golden brown.

Don't these look good?  They taste even better!

To make the whipped cream simply pour the amount of cream you want.  I used about a half cup.  Use electric whisk to whisk it till it becomes thick.  Add 1-2 tablespoons of confectioners sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.  That's it!


I buttered the toasts, added syrup, then topped with whipped cream.

 Enjoy a taste of the fall!!!  :)  PUMPKIN is your FRIEND!  :)
