Pumpkin Donut French Toast is an easy and creative way to make French toast. If you love pumpkin and sweets, then this is the breakfast you will love to have on Sunday morning!
Motivation time. Everyone has dreams, making those dreams come true involves hard work. Sometimes that hard work is what makes us give up on those dreams.
DONT STOP! Just because the work is hard and can be intimidating doesn’t mean you need to give up on your dreams. I realized this as I been doing this big SEO makeover on Seduction in the Kitchen.
I have this VERY long list of things I have to do on this food blog. Just when I think I am getting ahead, I find something out that I either need to start over or add to the list. Trust me it does get to the point where you just want to give up.
My dream is to make this blog into my own business and brand. I know I can do it but requires a lot of work. Any dream you have is worth all that hard work when you see your dream come true.
Do not ever give up on your dreams simply because of a lot of hard work involved. Trust me you will understand why I am saying this when your dreams come true. Frustration and getting through hard work actually in a weird way will make you appreciate your dreams when they come true so much more.
Pumpkin Donut French Toast
What does making dreams come true and Pumpkin Donut French Toast have in common? Both are ideas that come to life, that is what they have in common. Actually, I am known to do some outrageous recipes here on Seduction in the Kitchen.
I have created:
No, not bringing up the Pierogie ideas I have done. I think I have mentioned them many times on here before. So I thought I mention some other out there ideas I have had.
Actually this donut french toast idea, I can’t say I came up with totally on my own. I was inspired because I had the TV on and IHOP had a commercial for Donut French Toast. After seeing that commercial for the 10th time, I wondered if I could do the same, but with a pumpkin donut.
It is after all pumpkin everything time of year, right? So the old saying, Go Big OR Go Home was also in the back of my head. I wanted to do something a bit different as the topping for this donut then just syrup.
Recently I posted the
The frosting on that cupcake was a simple maple cream cheese icing. I felt if I could thin that icing down a bit with some cream, it would make a great syrup on this pumpkin donut french toast idea I had. I had to find pumpkin donuts first.
I found 2 options. First one was a gluten-free option: Katz, Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Donuts and the other was: Entenmann’s Pumpkin Donuts. I did ask a friend who eats gluten-free things to make my recipe using the Katz donuts. I made mine with the Entenmann’s. Then we compared notes.
OMG! We both agreed this recipe is not only easy, but it really is out this world. It is a perfect way to have a fun family breakfast on Sunday. This recipe will knock your socks off.
