I'm generally not a fan of the pumpkin spice craze, but my friend Jody made this incredible Pumpkin French Toast with Whipped Pumpkin Butter.I am completely hooked. It's pumpkin flavored in a suble way. The pumpkin butter is so light and fluffy. She made it wtih Challah bread, which really is the best bread for French toast. This is a must try for your next breakfast / brunch.
