pumpkin spiced french toast bake

Ah, ’tis the season for pumpkin spice. From lattes to linguini, the options are endless. This year I attempted homemade pumpkin spice so I always have some on hand! And odds are, you already have the ingredients in your pantry.

The first recipe? A twist on our family favorite french toast. The original recipe came from an inn in Cape Cod years ago but with a few small changes is transformed into an autumn masterpiece. It’s such a prefect brunch bake since you make it the night before and just pop it in the oven in the morning! 30 minutes later you have this Pumpkin Spiced French Toast Bake.

Homemade pumpkin spice is twice as nice!

Every summer my family and I take the 5 hour drive to Cape Cod, Massachusetts for vacation. It’s a trek we’ve been making since I was a little girl and it always reminds me of family. With the holiday season just beginning, I thought I’d share a dish that also makes me reminisce about family. This recipe was passed on to me by my aunt who scored the killer secrets from the Moses Nickerson House Inn in Chatham, Cape Cod. The almost 200 year old inn has since changed names, now calling themselves the Chatham Gables Inn and underwent a huge renovation, but we hope they kept this little gem on the menu! It’s the simplest go-to dish for any Sunday morning brunch or Christmas morning treat. You’ll enjoy cuddling up with loved ones while dining on this French Toast Casserole!
