  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1½ tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt (I use Diamond Crystal)
  • 1 loaf challah bread cut into 1¼ inch slices
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • Avocado oil (or neutral oil) spray

Whipped Mascarpone

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup mascarpone
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • In an 11x8 dish, add eggs and whisk until no noticeable egg whites are separated
  • Add pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, salt, and brown sugar and whisk until well combined.
  • Next, add whole milk, heavy cream, and vanilla extract and whisk until combined.
  • Dip challah bread into egg mixture. Set a timer for 4 minutes, punching challah slices into mixture after 1 minute has passed.
  • After 4 minutes, flip and set timer again. Preheat cast iron skillet.
  • Once cast iron is hot, add ½ tablespoon butter and spray bottom or skillet with avocado oil spray. Once butter melts, carefully add french toast and cook for 4 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. Flip and repeat cooking time. 
  • Serve immediately with whipped mascarpone (optional, see below) a dusting of pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup. Optional - Whipped Mascarpone 1. In a food processor, add all ingredients and process on “High” until mixture turns into a whipped texture. Place in a bowl and leave in refrigerator, covered until ready to use.
