This seasonal treat works well as a breakfast or a dessert. We soak cinnamon brioche in a pumpkin custard and slow cook it until the bread has absorbed the mixture. The end result tastes like a combination of pumpkin pudding and french toast. Feel free to serve it with a dusting of powdered sugar and maple syrup for breakfast or with a bit of whipped cream for dessert. Either way, this lightly spiced sweet treat is sure to please all you pumpkin lovers out there.

There aren’t any bad choices when it comes to pairing coffee and pumpkin flavors but if you’re in need of some suggestions we would recommend either a herbal cup of Sumatran coffee or some Jamaican Blue Mountain.
