For Topping:

  • 1/2 cup butter - softened
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 additional Tablespoons Amaretto
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • bananas and walnuts to taste

Pumpkin French Toast:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 8 slices day-old bread*
  • butter - for frying


First make Amaretto Butter:

  • by combining the 1/2 cup butter with 2 Tablespoons of Amaretto.

Then make the Amaretto Syrup:

  • In small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup Amaretto with the maple syrup. Heat to boiling. Allow to cool before serving. These will be your toppings.

Pumpkin French Toast:

  • * French bread is my favorite as it really absorbs the egg mixture. Standard white or wheat slices work fine as long as they're slightly dry.
  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs. Add the pumpkin, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and nutmeg and continue to beat until well combined. Transfer mixture to a shallow baking pan big enough to fit 2 slices of bread face-down.
  • Place a skillet or large frying pan over medium heat. Melt about 2 teaspoons of butter for batch of French toast.
  • Place bread slices in the egg mixture and coat each side for 10 or 15 seconds. Use a spatula to remove if bread gets too soggy. Transfer the slices two at a time (more if your skillet has room) to the heated pan. Fry each side of the bread to a golden-orangish-brown - 2 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Add additional butter to the frying pan as needed to complete remaining batches.
  • Serve warm with the Amaretto butter and Amaretto syrup.
  • Add chopped bananas and walnuts to taste.
