Pumpkin French Toast

Posted by Neens on

The seasons change and we can’t do anything to stop it.  We can be surfing in board shorts on a Sunday, and on Friday of the same week a wetsuit is not optional, it is required.   We start to wear socks again, we dig in the closet for extra blankets and red Starbucks cups make the transition official.  There is no turning back.  Well us Onoyummers are not those who resist tasting the holidays, we are all about it.  This is one of our favorite recipes, mainly because it uses our favorite bread… King’s Hawaiian.  We picture making this dish the morning after Thanksgiving.  I mean, everyone’s getting ready to shop their butts off, so you might as well start Black Friday off with warm French Toast and some coffee!


1 1/2 cup milk
2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
2 tsp Cinnamon, ground
1 cup Pumpkin Puree
1 cup Brown sugar
Maple Syrup, Toasted Almonds, Shaved Coconut for garnish
1 loaf KING’S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Round Bread


1. Cut KING’S HAWAIIAN Sweet Round Bread into 1-inch cubes and set aside in a large bowl.
2. Preheat oven to 325 Degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 10-inch cast iron skillet and set inside oven until mixture is ready.
3. In a blender, add all ingredients except the bread and puree until smooth.
4. Cover the bread cubes with the blended mixture and mix to coat.
5. Pour bread mixture into skillet and bake French toast for 45 mins until toothpick comes out clean.
6. Serve with maple syrup, toasted nuts, coconut and enjoy!

Onoyum Tip:  Coconut Syrup works great as well!!!
