Overnight Pumpkin Spice Baked French Toast Casserole

The name of this recipe sure is a mouthful! It’s a modified version of the Overnight Cinnamon Baked French Toast Casserole recipe(also a mouthful) from a couple weeks ago. In the spirit of the holidays and all things pumpkin I “pumpkin-ified” it – much to my husband’s dismay. He gets pretty tired of all the pumpkin spice stuff everywhere this time of year. ๐Ÿ™‚

So in an effort to not have to eat the whole thing by myself, I made it at my parents house when we visited a couple weekends ago. It is was a big hit! And since my mom was going out of town the next day and was trying to get rid of everything in her fridge, I took the leftovers to a friend when I went to see her later that day.

Unfortunately I didn’t realize just how much of a hit it was with my dad. He went looking for the leftovers later and was crushed that I had given them away. Oops! I had no idea he would be so into something pumpkin flavored.

So after almost 2 weeks, I’m told I have to make sure I get this recipe posted. My mom called me this past weekend wondering where it was on the blog because she had decided to make him another casserole so she didn’t have to hear about it anymore. I guess he’d been upset over it all week. Sorry, mom!

And because she’s such a copycat she followed my form with the original recipe and took it to tailgate at the Panthers game. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Again, it was a hit! So, I recommend you try it my friends! The perfect holiday flavored breakfast! Tailgate tested, Dad approved.

  • Total Time: 65 minutes, plus chilling
  • Yield: 10-12 Servings 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Method: Oven
  • Cuisine: American



  • 1 loaf Sourdough Or French Bread (I used Sourdough, my mom used French, both were great)
  • 8 whole eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cups Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin


  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (1/2 tsp + 1/2 tsp)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice (3/4 tsp + 3/4 tsp)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick butter, cut in pieces


1. Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish with butter.
2. Tear bread into chunks and evenly lay out in dish.
3. Whisk together eggs, milk, cream, sugar, pumpkin and vanilla. Pour evenly over bread.
4. Cover and store in fridge for several hours or overnight.
5. In another bowl, mix 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 tsp pumpkin spice and salt. Add butter and mash into the dry mixture until it all comes together. You can store this mixture in the fridge overnight if youโ€™d like.
6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees the next morning.
7. Remove casserole and pre-made topping from fridge. Crumble pre-made topping and sprinkle over the top of the casserole.
8. For some extra topping to cover areas that aren’t covered by the pre-made topping (I like the cinnamon and spice on every bite!) combine 2 tbsp flour, 2 tbsp brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 3/4 tsp pumpkin spice (same stuff as the pre-made topping, minus the butter). Sprinkle over top of casserole and pre-made topping.
9. Bake for 45 minutes for a softer, more moist texture. Bake an hour or more for a firmer, less moist texture.
10. Serve with syrup.
