Our recipe for Pumpkin Bread Pudding comes direct from celebrity chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Donatella Arpaia. This easy yet elegant bread pudding is packed with the savory flavor of pumpkin.

What You'll Need:
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 (15-ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin (not pie filling)
  • 1/2 pound French or Italian bread, sliced thick and torn into large chunks
  • Whipped cream, if desired
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the bread and whipped cream; whisk until smooth. Add bread and stir until all chunks are evenly moistened. Cover and let soak 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
     
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. 
     
  3. Spoon bread mixture into baking dish and bake 1 to 1-1/4 hours, or until set. Let cool slightly, spoon into serving dishes, top with whipped cream, and serve.
Options

You can also bake this recipe in individual ramekins. Just place them on a baking sheet and reduce baking time to 40 to 45 minutes.

I made this today. I'll make it again BUT next time I'll double the amount of each spice and add some vanilla. It was just too bland; something definitely was lacking. May add some chopped pecans, too.

I made this again today BUT this time, I added 1 tsp. vanilla and doubled the amounts of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and sprinkled cinnamon on the top while it was still hot from the oven. BIG DIFFERENCE! Today's version was much more flavorful and tasty, in my opinion.

My daughter made a Pumpkin Bread Pudding for Thanksgiving, instead of using french or italian bread she used Pumpkin Bread It was beyond GREAT !!
