Perfect for Thanksgiving or the Holidays
This pumpkin bread pudding is the perfect easy pumpkin dessert. Don’t bother messing around with pastry. This pumpkin bread pudding is pure comfort food, and so delicious. It would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving and holiday baking line up.
I’m a big fan of bread pudding in general, but this pumpkin version is the perfect twist for the holidays. It’s pumpkin-y and creamery, and so, so good. And bread pudding is really easy to put together. This pumpkin bread pudding is taken to the next level by using egg bread.
We have a little family run bakery near by that sells fresh egg bread each day. It’s the kind of place that bakes each morning and sells out each afternoon. They aren’t the cutest building and I have to admit that if someone hadn’t told me to go there I probably would have passed it by. Since discovering it a few years ago we seriously go just about every week. Egg bread can be a little tricky to find, but it adds a richness to this dish that can’t be beat.
- 7 cups of egg bread cubed
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp vanilla
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- warm custard to serve with
- Combine the pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, heavy cream, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- Add in bread cubes, and stir gently to combine without breaking up the bread cubes.
- Pour the mixture into a greased 8 x 8 baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
- Serve the bread pudding warm with a warm custard sauce.
I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Just typing it up and seeing the pictures again has my mouth watering and makes me want to make it again soon.
Also, I served this at a dinner party the night I took the pictures. In fact, I was finishing up the pictures just as my guest were arriving. We had a lovely cheese board, and some amazing pasta with braised beef, Caesar salad and garlic bread. But you know what everyone was just waiting for? The dessert they saw and smelled when they arrived. After waiting all evening for it, finally they were able to report it was worth the wait!
With Pumpkin Bread Pudding for dessert, life is really a party!
