Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

Pumpkin French Toast Casserole

I'm always on the lookout for new recipes to try. Some work, some don't. Some become favorites for life. The later was the case of this pumpkin French toast casserole. I found a mouthwatering pic browsing on Pinterest on a Sunday afternoon and it was love at first sight.

Since then I've baked it a few times and each time I like it more. The sweet taste of pumpkin, French toast and pecans is outstanding. I've also done different versions in rectangular or round molds. Unfortunately, there's a key ingredient which appears in the original recipe that I'm unable to find in Spain: pumpkin spice. Maybe it's available in specialized stores but not in regular supermarkets. If you know where to find it, let me know.

I remember having pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks in autumn while living in California. It was my favorite drink of the season. Ah, those were good times... :)

Without further ado, here's the recipe.

Ingredients
1 (day old) bread, diced
2 cups milk 
½ cup heavy cream
1 cup granulated sugar (200 gr)
6 large eggs
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 tablespoons vanilla

Indredients for streusel
½ cup brown sugar (100 gr)
½ cup cold salted butter, diced (115 gr)
½ cup all purpose flour (70 gr)
chopped pecans (as many as you like)

Directions
1. Put the diced bread inside a baking pan. You can coat the pan with butter previously so that it won't stick.
2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, sugar, pumpkin and vanilla in a bowl. Then pour the mixture over the bread. Cover it with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
3. Once it's ready, you have to prepare the streusel. For that you have to mix the brown sugar, butter, flour and pecans in a bowl. Use your finger tips. Then sprinkle the streusel mixture over the french toast casserole.
4. Now it's ready to bake. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Bake for 1 hour or until thoroughly cooked. Let it cool down and serve with powdered sugar on top.
