Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is a classic dessert popular in many countries around the world. Google bread pudding and you’ll find a ton of different ways to make it and flavours galore. It typically contains the same pantry staples like bread, cream/milk, eggs and sugar plus whatever flavourings you are adding. I made a Pumpkin Bread Pudding that is fitting as a fall dessert. I might as well jump in on the pumpkin bandwagon since pumpkin is EVERYWHERE these days!

I recommend using stale bread so it will hold up better. Just leave a loaf of bread out on the counter overnight and it should be good to go in the morning for your recipe. It’s a great way to use up extra bread in your pantry.

I baked it in a springform pan so it’s easier to cut. It held its shape beautifully for the photos.
