Pumpkin Cake French Toast with Eggnog Syrup

By | December 1, 2013

I’ve made Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Pie Bars with Gingerbread Crust, Pumpkin Spice Fudge, and Pumpkin Cake, but this is the first time I have made Pumpkin Cake French Toast.  I bet you’ve never heard of it!  I made it up this morning when I was searching for breakfast.  ha!  I started out with a Pumpkin Cake using a cake mix and adding in pumpkin pie filling.  Then I sliced the cake into smaller pieces the size of a piece of bread and dipped them into eggs.  Cooked them on the skillet until they were done and golden brown.  Then I topped them with some homemade eggnog syrup.

I have to say it was one of the best breakfasts I have ever had!  You have to try it!
