Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Oct 09 022_editedBread pudding has to be the ultimate comfort food dessert . Add pumpkin and this dessert will melt your worries away (not that I am encouraging emotional eating;).

So instead of saving that loaf of day-old bread to feed to the ducks (which you know you’ll never actually do), put that bread to good use and make pumpkin bread pudding.

The method is simple: toss bread cubes with some melted butter; pour over a mixture of milk, eggs, pumpkin and spices; and bake.

The recipe I used is from the blog Smitten Kitchen. I even followed Deb’s modifications for an even simpler recipe because, you know, comfort food should be simple.

The recipe.

I think this recipe would also make excellent pumpkin French toast — any takers?

    After reading your post I decided to make this a few nights ago! It was a huge hit with both Paul and the boys. Caleb even had some for breakfast the next morning! Thanks for the inspiration!

      Great! I am so glad everyone liked the bread pudding so much. I was amazed at how easy it was to make and am looking for a good opportunity to make it again.

      I think this has to be my second-favorite pumpkin dessert (after pumpkin pie!). :) I’m glad you commented because it reminded me I need to make this soon!

    Oooh! I am just seeing this post for the first time and it looks delicious. I think I’ll need to try it this fall (even if it won’t feel like fall here :( ).

    • You should definitely try this recipe! I think I’ve made it every year since I first posted it and I always enjoy it. I know…I have a feeling it will be sunny here too for most of fall. :( But I guess we’ll have to stick it out and enjoy our favorite fall foods even if it doesn’t feel like fall.
