RECIPE: Pumpkin Bread Pudding

This is a family favorite and a must for us in the fall. It is gone quickly with little or no leftovers. Best served with fresh whipped cream!

I set out to take pictures as I was making it. I managed to take 2! Cooking and taking pictures at the same time is not my forte. Since it is a pretty simple and straight forward recipe, I do't think a picture tutorial is really needed anyways.


2 cups heavy cream
1 (15 oz) can solid pack pumpkin
1 cup whole milk
1 cup sugar
5 large eggs
½ t salt
1 t cinnamon
½ t ginger
¼ t allspice
⅛ t ground cloves
1 baguette loaf or other crusty bread, day old, cubed to make 10 cups
¾ cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350f with rack in middle.  Whisk together cream, pumpkin, milk, sugar, eggs, salt, and spices in a bowl. Toss bread cubes with melted butter in another bowl, then add pumpkin mixture and toss to coat. Transfer to an ungreased 9”x13” pan and bake until custard is set (30+ minutes).

  1. Sometimes we're so weirdly on the same wavelength. We had pumpkin bread pudding last night, too, but I made my girls make it, and I didn't get any pictures. It was delicious, though!

  2. the big or small can of pumpkin?


    1. Sorry, I should have specified it. 15 oz can!
