Easy Holiday Pumpkin Dessert

Our bread pudding is flavorful, soft, tender and perfect as a holiday dessert. It’s a great alternative to bring to a potluck when there’s already a plethora of traditional holiday desserts. Don’t forget the whipped cream and you’ll definitely be the dessert hero at the party. This popular dessert is also wonderful for breakfast and brunch. Cut into squares and they’re wonderful with a cup of hot coffee. In fact, we’ve shared them for big breakfast gatherings and they’re wonderful as bite sized squares. Serve the whipped cream in a bowl on the side and for everyone’s whipped cream dolloping pleasure.

There’s so many reasons to love this bread pudding. Best of all, it’s a flavor that pairs perfectly with the cold weather and the season. Can’t wait to make big batches of these to share with everyone and hope you share your batch too!

Pumpkin Spice Bread Pudding

Yield: 12 servings
Prep Time:
10 mins
Cook Time:
1 hr
Total Time:
1 hr 10 mins
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.


  • 8-10 cups brioche or day-old French bread , cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 5 large eggs , beaten
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground clove
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whipped cream (optional)


  1. Grease or Butter a 9”x13” baking dish. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. 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.
  3. Pour the bread pudding into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour, or until set and golden.
  5. Allow to cool and serve with dollops of whipped cream.

Recipe Notes

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.
