Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Truth be told, I’m not huge into pumpkin.  I didn’t have a piece of pumpkin pie until I was in college and I was just like, what’s the fuss all about.  Now,  I can honestly say I’m a pumpkin fan.    This recipe came about from my experimenting in the kitchen to try to make french toast.   I’m still working on it but this paleo dessert recipe will be on my holiday menu for years to come.


Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Most bread puddings come with some super sugary sauce and I just couldn’t do it but I highly recommend topping this with whipped cream or coconut cream.  Honestly, this would be all kinds of deadly deliciousness with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

    I’m in to pumpkin, but not bread pudding. However my parents both LOVE bread pudding so this would be a special dessert I can make for them this season.

    Bread pudding is one of my husband’s favorite desserts. Yours looks absolutely perfect–I love all that whipped cream on top!

    Your recipes are so fantastic, I don’t know if I like bread pudding though.

    This looks really good. I am hoping to make some food changes towards the beginning of the new year and seeing yummy recipes like this makes me think it’s possible.

    Pumpkin is one of my favorite things ever, but sadly, since I had my gall bladder removed, I can’t eat it. 🙁 This looks sooooo yummy!

  15. Lolo December 8, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    Oh my gosh, that looks absolutely amazing!

  16. Mellisa December 9, 2012 at 7:32 am

    This looks amazing. I never really had a taste for pumpkin until recently. It’s weird how your taste buds change as you get older. 🙂

  17. JulieD December 10, 2012 at 10:09 am

    Now that looks awesome!!

  18. Lisa December 13, 2012 at 11:15 am

    Yum! I love bread pudding, but I have never had it with pumpkin before.

    Hi Kelly, do you think this recipe would turn out well if blackstrap molasses was replaced for the maple syrup in the pumpkin sauce? Thanks

    1. Kelly Bejelly December 19, 2012 at 12:11 pm

      Yeah, I think it would give it some great depth too! I hope you like it 🙂

    I was just wondering, under the bread section of the recipe, how much coconut oil is supposed to be added?

    Is it a 1/4 cup? 1 tsp? or 1/4 + 1 tsp?

    1. Kelly Bejelly December 25, 2012 at 11:48 pm

      1/4 plus 1 tsp and I just updated it 🙂

    I have to say, I’ve made this a few times and I LOVE IT. I make my own pumpkin puree so it takes me a little longer, but it is so worth it. I found I need to double the sauce recipe otherwise it is a little dry in my opinion. This is my go to recipe for bringing a dish for Thanksgiving dinner.
