The mornings are cool and crisp, our jackets and sweaters are being pulled out of storage, and a few days ago we took our annual drive up the canyon to view the beautiful Fall colors.

Fall is one of the most beloved seasons, probably due to the many tantalizing scents and flavors unique to this time of year. We love all the flavors of Fall, but pumpkin is probably our favorite!

From pumpkin donuts to pumpkin ice cream, we’re loving all these seasonal recipes!

Pumpkin Pie French Toast has been a favorite of ours for several years. It is an easy recipe that is quick to make and quick to clean up. It has all the flavors of a delicious slice of pumpkin pie and is perfect topped with a dollop of whipped cream!

We love serving this buttermilk syrup recipe with pumpkin pie french toast instead of traditional maple syrup, although maple works just fine if that’s what you prefer to use. Buttermilk syrup has a caramel-like flavor, is easy to make and keeps for several weeks in the fridge.

The great thing about this pumpkin pie french toast recipe is you can use just about any bread you want. For a list of our favorite gluten free breads, you can read this post.

For the photos, we used Udi’s new bread (the full 24 oz loaf). We have loved this bread because it is shelf-stable and has a really soft texture that isn’t crumbly and doesn’t require toasting. You can find it in the freezer section of just about any grocery store. We have also used Franz, homemade bread, and probably a few others 🙂

No one likes french toast that is crumbly or falls apart as you’re flipping it, so be sure your loaf of gluten free bread isn’t crumbly. If using Udi’s, be sure to take it out of the freezer to thaw at least 24 hours before you will be making this recipe.

    I’m so ready for #pumpkineverything , seriously, it is my favorite season. I’m also a huge fan of french toast, and then that buttermilk syrup, I think that just puts it over the edge. I want to pour that stuff on everything!
