Combination of 2 classic recipes: bread pudding and pumpkin pie. I put this together on a whim and loved it. Taste is more comforting than sweet. Great served warm or cold and can be complemented with whipped cream or milk.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Spread bread cubes into the prepared baking dish.

  • Mix raisins, maple-flavored extract, and rum-flavored extract together in a bowl; pour in enough water to almost cover raisins. Heat raisin mixture in microwave until raisins are plump, about 1 1/2 minutes; set aside to cool slightly.

  • Beat milk, pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, eggs, raisin mixture, brown sugar, butter, molasses, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, allspice, and ginger together in a large bowl until smooth; pour over bread. Set mixture aside until bread has absorbed the liquid, about 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Flavorings in raisins are not essential--just my preference.

Brown sugar can be adjusted and does not need to be combined with ingredients. It can be sprinkled over top before baking.

Try adding approximately 1/4 cup orange marmalade for a twist.

Drizzle with your favorite caramel sauce or ice cream topping before serving, if desired.

This was our Thanksgiving dessert and EVERYONE thought it was a HUGE success. From our two year old grandson (who pulled up a stepstool in the kitchen so he could help himself) to my 60 year old husband and everyone in between! This will become a staple at holiday meals. Some had their with whipped cream and some with frozen vanilla yogurt while some had one topping with the first serving and the other with the second. I did not add the the raisins (due to family preferences) or the last three spices and we were totally thrilled with the results. Oddly enough I found this recipe on msn.com but could not find it on allrecipes.com!? Read More

I thought it was a good recipe. I followed the recipe as is. The only thing I did wrong was that I did not put the dish in the fridge before serving it. I noticed the dish tasted so much better after letting in sit in the refrigerator overnight. I guess that helped all of the ingredients to settle. If you enjoy pumpkin I would recommend this recipe.

The only change I made was I didn't use the condensed milk as I didn't want it sweeter so I used evaporated milk instead and it came out perfect! I will make this again!! Read More

Thanks so much for the raisin tip! I had really old raising and the extract/microwave trick revived them completely! I used about a cup of raisins and 2 t. maple extract. I only had about 1/4 t. of rum extract on hand. I enjoyed the lasting maple flavoring on the raisins. In terms of other substitutions: pkg of 12 hot dog buns for french bread; half & half for milk; no pumpkin; no molasses; nutmeg for allspice. I also threw in 1/2 c. of cinnamon toast crunch to put over the top. Read More

I made it exactly as written but didn't have a loaf of French bread so used some leftover Hawaiian rolls. It was excellent. I didn't let it rest for an hour because of a time crunch but it was fine. The Recipe makes a lot. When I reheat it I plan to sprinkle brown sugar on top or serve with ice cream. I think a caramel sauce would make it too sweet. A keeper Read More

Bread puddings are my favorite kinds of desserts. This recipe doesn't disappoint. The combination of pumpkin with the bread pudding is perfect for a warm fall dessert. Read More
