Pumpkin Spice Bread Pudding

If you use a smaller baking dish, bake for a bit longer to make sure it bakes all the way through. If needed, cover with foil to prevent the top from browning too much. Different breads will vary the finished texture of the bread pudding. Brioche and other very soft breads will be more moist after baking. They might require a little longer of a baking time than a firmer bread.

  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25 ml) ground clove
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5 ml) salt
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (480 ml) whipped cream (optional)


  • 9”x13” baking dish


  • Grease or Butter a 9”x13” baking dish. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, beat the eggs. Add pumpkin puree, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, salt and vanilla. Add bread into the large bowl of egg/pumpkin mix and gently toss. Lightly press down on the bread to soak up the liquids.
  • Pour the bread pudding into the prepared baking dish.
  • Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour, or until set and golden.
  • Allow to cool and serve with dollops of whipped cream.


This recipe is extra delicious with a homemade pumpkin puree. Depending on the pumpkin you make the puree out of, some homemade purees will be a bit more watery than the commercially bought canned purees. If so, reduce the amount of puree to 3/4 cup or increase baking times to make sure it bakes through.
