Ingredients:
For the Pumpkin French Toast:



    • 1 cup milk

    • 3 eggs

    • 1 teaspoon vanilla

    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice

    • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree

    • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

    • 2 teaspoons sugar

    • Sliced French Bread or Texas Toast

    • butter for the pan



For the Orange Cream Cheese:



    • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened

    • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

    • 1 teaspoon orange zest

    • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed orange juice

    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla



For Serving:


  • Pads of butter

  • Pure maple syrup

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar + 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, for dusting

Directions:
    1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla, orange juice, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and sugar. Heat a griddle medium to medium-high heat. Melt some butter in the pan. One slice of bread at a time, dip in the custard mixture, coating both sides. Place the coated bread directly into the hot, buttered pan. Cook each slice until browned and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Keep the slices warm in a 200 degree over while you make the rest.
To Make the Orange Cream Cheese:
    1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, beat together the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, orange zest and juice, and vanilla until smooth.
To Assemble and Serve:
  1. Spread one hot slice of Pumpkin French Toast with Orange Cream Cheese. Top with another slice of French toast and slice the toast on the bias. Continue with the remaining slices. Serve with butter, pure maple syrup, and a dusting of pumpkin pie spiced powdered sugar.

Notes

If making the Pumpkin French Toast without the Orange Cream Cheese stuffing, add 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest to the custard mixture.
