Pumpkin Pie French Toast Bake


Make this Pumpkin Pie French Toast Bake the night before, and pop it in the oven in the morning!  Rich, creamy and full of delicious pumpkin pie flavours.


  • 56 cups of chunks of bread (Challah or French bread work great)
  • 1/2 of an 8 oz package of Philadelphia Cream Cheese (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 cup cream (like half & half)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar for garnish


  1. In a bowl whisk together the cream, pumpkin puree, eggs, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice. Set aside.
  2. Next prepare a baking dish. I like to rub mine lightly with butter.
  3. Sprinkle in 1/3 of the bread.
  4. Add 1/2 the chunks of cream cheese.
  5. Sprinkle in 1/3 of the bread.
  6. Add the rest of the cream cheese.
  7. Sprinkle on the remaining chunks of bread.
  8. Pour the milk/pumpking mixture over the bread.
  9. Sprinkle on the 2 tbsp of brown sugar.
  10. If you are baking this dish in the morning, cover the dish with tin foil and put it in the fridge overnight.
  11. In the morning preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  12. Bake covered for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for 30 minutes more, until golden brown and puffy.
  13. Serve with syrup or cream.
