Pumpkin Butterscotch Bread Pudding recipe

All the flavors of pumpkin pie – plus one delicious extra – come together in this classic bread pudding. Soft cinnamon challah bread is soaked with spiced pumpkin custard, topped with butterscotch morsels and cinnamon sugar, and then baked till warm and golden. There’s no better dessert to cozy up with on a chilly autumn day than this delicious bread pudding!

We recently shot a video for this recipe in our Nestlé Kitchens. Take a look, a few extra tips are shared.

Ingredients for 12 servings:

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350º F. Grease 13 x 9-inch baking pan or dish.

Spread bread cubes in single layer on rimmed baking sheets (note: cinnamon challah bread works beautifully in this recipe, but regular challah, brioche and French bread work well too).

Bake, tossing occasionally, for 10 minutes or until dry (above). Don’t skip this step – the cubes need to be dried out so that they can absorb all the delicious filling!

Let stand for 30 minutes or until bread is thoroughly saturated (press down bread occasionally as needed). Take a look at the image above, the bread absorbed the filling.

Cool on wire rack for about 30 minutes (this will allow bread pudding to set). This bread pudding is lovely by itself, but I find vanilla ice cream to be the perfect complement.

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
