Easy Does It Overnite Pumpkin French Toast

French Toast on a Sunday Morning with a cup of coffee is one of my favorites for breakfast.

I started making pumpkin french toast last year, but the batter was so thick it tended to separate from the bread when I cooked it.

To prevent that you had to really let it soak into the bread – but then you ended up with a soggy mess.

The last time I made Pumpkin French Toast that way I decided to experiment with the leftover batter.
