Pumpkin bread is my absolute favorite thing to make during the fall months. For a particularly indulgent take, add dark chocolate chunks to the batter. Fresh pumpkin is the secret ingredient. I love cutting into a loaf straight out of the oven to enjoy a thick slice and see the orange flakes. The only way it gets better is by making pumpkin bread French toast for breakfast the next morning.

As far as French toast recipes go, this one is killer. That first hot, gooey bite will make your whole body melt from the heavenly taste of fresh pumpkin. This recipe is perfect for Sunday mornings; you know you did the weekend right when you get to indulge in homemade pumpkin bread French toast for breakfast.
