This bread pudding smells so wonderful while baking! Its a family favorite I make in October a few times and in November.
You’ll need one 20 ounce loaf of sweet bread (I use a local bakery), whatever bread choice you like. Cut into cubes and place in a large bowl. In another bowl add 3 large eggs, 1/2 cup light cream, 1 cup Libby’s pumpkin pie filling (or your favorite brand), 1/2 cup pecan pieces, 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice mix (I use McCormick’s), 1-1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, whisk together well. Pour these ingredients into the sweet bread cubes and allow to soak for 5 minutes, stir well.
I use a non stick 9″ x 12″ baking dish x (4″ deep) pour ingredients into the baking dish and smooth out with a spatula.
Preheat oven 400 F, once hot add baking dish on the middle rack and bake 30-35 minutes (or until golden brown on top).
Serve warm and with some whipped cream topping, its a winner Y’all.
Hope you will enjoy!
