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.

    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.

    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

    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?

    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.
