Pumpkin bread french toast

Use your favorite pumpkin bread and turn it into
french toast.
Picture and recipe from Pennies on a Platter

1 loaf pumpkin bread, at least a day old
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
pinch of salt
2 Tbsp butter

Preheat the oven to 400˚F.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla,
cinnamon, allspice and salt; set aside.
Slice the pumpkin loaf into 8 thick slices, not counting
the end pieces (crust). Melt the butter in a large skillet.
Meanwhile, dip each slice of bread in the egg batter. Let the
bread soak up the custard. Transfer to the heated skillet
and brown for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
Place the browned pieces of bread onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with maple syrup or choice of toppings.
