French toast is one of those foods I associate with fancy B&Bs and lazy Sunday brunches.
And stuffed French toast takes it to another level of decadent deliciousness!
Yep, I went there.
I took fall’s favorite flavor — pumpkin spice — mixed it with some cream cheese, sandwiched it between slices of French bread, dipped it in a tasty spiced egg batter and fried it up for breakfast!
The secret ingredient in this recipe is International Delight® Pumpkin Pie Spice coffee creamer. It gives this stuffed French toast all its fall flavor, so you don’t have to fiddle with measuring out cinnamon and nutmeg and other spcies. I just love a shortcut in the kitchen!
French toast may seem fancy, but it’s really an easy dish to make — even stuffed French toast. With a little advance prep, you could certainly make this recipe on a weekday morning.
Just make sure to allow yourself plenty of time to savor it while you sip a cup of your favorite coffee, flavored with International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice creamer.
- 1 loaf French bread
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 7 ounces canned pumpkin
- 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 5 eggs
- 1 cup International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice Creamer
- Powdered sugar
- Maple syrup, optional
- In a mixer, combine softened cream cheese, pumpkin, brown sugar and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until the mixture is smooth, like a frosting.
- Cut French bread into slices that are 2 inches thick, then use a knife to make a slit in the center of each slice to create a pocket for the filling.
- Spread pumpkin cream cheese filling in the pocket of each slice of bread.
- In a large baking dish, whisk together eggs and coffee creamer.
- Dip each stuffed bread slice in the egg mixture, allowing to soak into the bread for about 2 minutes.
- Then flip the bread over and allow to soak in the egg mixture for 2 minutes more.
- Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat and fry the bread slices in batches.
- Cook each side until golden brown, then remove to a plate.
- You may need to melt more butter for each batch of toast slices.
- Dust with powdered sugar and drizzle with hot maple syrup, if desired.
When you serve this pumpkin spice stuffed French toast, you can give it a light dusting of powdered sugar and dig in. But I love to drizzle it with a little hot maple syrup for the ultimate fall flavor mashup.
