Bread pudding feels like it’s something I probably should have made in the past. When Carrie suggested it, I couldn’t believe it was something I hadn’t made before. As I did a little research on exactly how to make it and started formulating my idea I realized, I have kind of made this a few other times. Bread pudding is cubed up bread that gets covered in an egg mixture and then baked until set. The process, as well as the dish itself reminds me of the overnight french toast that I make every year for our Mother’s Day brunch. In that case, slices of bread are covered in an egg mixture and soak overnight before being baked in the oven. (Note to self: I need to share that recipe here! Too good not to and how have I not done this already??)

Since we are officially in the season of autumn we can let the pumpkin onslaught begin! Naturally, that is almost immediately where my ideas went when contemplating my bread pudding idea. I combined apples, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg for all the warm flavors that this season has to offer. What resulted was a perfect fall bread pudding that would be ideal for a brunch or an easy dessert any time.

We hope that you’ll join in with us for First on the First next month as we tackle making soufflé!

Enjoy!

Bread pudding is comfort food for my family! Every time I bake one, I try out something new. Now that I think of it, I’ve never tried one with pumpkin and this sounds like a great recipe to try.

Looks delish! Great minds think alike. I did a pumpkin based one too. Now like ChristineM said, I wish the weather would cooperate for Fall goodies like this!

OMGoodness seems in celebration of October everyone is kicking off the season with pumpkin and winter gourds. Love Bread pudding though I must admit it I rarely make it at home. Love it when I nibble at friends! :)

I love this flavour combo! I’ve never made bread pudding either – I was pleasantly surprised to see it’s not that pudding-like :)

Reply

Kate October 2, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Me too! If it were mushier that could be pretty gross ;) I loved the consistency.

What a delicious fall flavor combination! I don’t know that I would have thought of combining apples and pumpkin, but this sounds too delicious not to try! Great pick!! :)

I was thinking the same thing making it, re: overnight French toast. Not a whole lot different. I like how you took all the flavors of fall and wrapped them up together in this. :)

Would you believe I’ve never made a pumpkin bread pudding? Yours looks freakin’ amazing – gooey, ‘custardy’ perfection. I could eat a whole pan of it easily. The ultimate Fall comfort sweet! Once again, you knocked one out of the park!
