Get your pumpkin spice latte fix in this SUPER easy fall-style bread pudding that comes together in minutes and is so perfect for any brunch!
I have a confession. The closest I’ve gotten to a pumpkin spice latte this year is what you’re currently looking at: this bread pudding.
As a pumpkin enthusiast I’m probably failing at fall right now, but definitely not with my bread pudding intentions.
Is there much that can be said about little french bread cubes baked in a pumpkin custard and covered with mountains of powdered sugar? Not much, cause your mouth should be full of it.
OOOH. Also, in addition to our fall theme today, we’re having a baby shower for Ashley, Denise, and Kristine!! (more on that at the bottom of the recipe) I obviously had every excuse to bring a pumpkin bread pudding to the party.
Basic fall baking right here, y’all. All you’ll need to do for this bread pudding is as follows >>>
a) Cube up a bunch of stale French bread and toss ’em in melted butter.
b) Make your pumpkin custard. << literally two minutes and you’ve got it.
c) Toss it all together with your bread cubes and pecans and throw ‘er in the oven.
Approximately 30 anguishing minutes later your kitchen should smell like a legit pumpkin factory.
Oh, and now would be the PERFECT time to “accidentally” spill all the powdered sugar on top of your bread pudding beauty.
Also on the list of accidents: eating every single inch of that perfection. ??

I just made pumpkin bread pudding a few weeks ago, and was hooked, so I’ve got to try this latte version! This looks SO good, Sarah! I kinda want to dig in for breakfast!
Liz @ Floating Kitchen says
OMG YES! Bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts every. I’ve never made a pumpkin version before. Need to try this for Fall ASAP! And perfect for feeding a crowd!
In all honestly I don’t like to drink pumpkin spice lattes anymore…I just grew out of those sweet coffee drinks. Bread pudding however is a much better way to enjoy those flavors and I’m completely down with this for dessert (or breakfast)!
ASHLEY - THE RECIPE REBEL says
My husband would FLIP for this! I can just imagine how good it is with a scoop of ice cream. Thank you so much for helping us celebrate!
I would take this bread pudding over a real PSL any day 🙂 It looks amazing, Sarah and just perfect for a fall celebration!

This is so up my alley! I’ve been craving ALL things pumpkin lately. Looks delicious, Sarah, and thanks so much for making my day <3
Izzy @ She Likes Food says
This sounds like the best bread pudding ever!! I need some for breakfast and dessert!
Nora | Savory Nothings says
Bread pudding is the single most bestest dessert for the colder months, EVER! And then you went and added pumpkin. And caffeine. I’m SO in love!
Stacey @ Bake.Eat.Repeat. says
Pumpkin filled desserts are maybe the best part of fall! This looks amazing!
