Do Try This At Home: Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Warm Caramel Sauce

December 29, 2008


Please come visit the shiny new home of DDD by clicking here.



A few of you asked for the Pumpkin Bread Pudding recipe about which I posted yesterday. Since I wasn’t entirely thrilled with the pumpkin bread on its own, and I was most assuredly dissatisfied with the sweetened condensed milk (the base for the caramel sauce) on its own, I hadn’t intended to post the recipe.

But you know what they say about the sum of individual parts. . . despite the haphazard way the dish came together, it ended up being a winner, so I’ll try to reconstruct the recipe here.  It was a huge hit and would make a spectacular New Year’s Eve dessert served in wine or martini glasses.

[BIG caveat:  I didn’t take notes while making this, so you may have to play with proportions a bit, particularly with the caramel sauce. Results may vary.]

Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Warm Caramel Sauce (GF option)


With pumpkin in both the bread and the “custard” in which it bakes, this pudding is definitely rich in pumpkin.  Lightly spiced, this moist bread pudding is highlighted with a rum-infused caramel sauce.

    This sounds delicious. I never get sick of new pumpkin recipes.

  15. Maggie Says:

    Great looking dish! I’ve been searching for a condensed milk recipe with soy milk that doesn’t just use cornstarch to get the same consistency. I have to make some and give it a try in other recipes. I bet it tastes great made with almond milk!

  16. Sarah Says:

    Looks great. I can’t wait to try it. Did you consider using Coconut milk instead the condensed milk?

  17. BitterSweet Says:

    Mm, that photo has me drooling!

  18. Katie Says:

    I would eat this any time of day!

  19. Lisa Says:

    Best wishes for the New Year Ricki!

    I can’t wait to be back in my own home (and kitchen) so I can try this! Beautiful, and I’m sure, delicious!

  22. Ashley Says:

    Ooo yummy yummy! I’m sure I would love this. I had no idea you could make condensed soymilk (though I guess that makes sense).

  23. Joy Tienzo Says:

    This looks delicious. I love bread pudding and can’t wait to try it!

    Hi Ricki,

    I very much enjoyed spending a long time browsing through your wonderful blog. i do have a question, where do you suggest I can purchase all the different types of flour and grain you add in your recipes? I live in Brooklyn, NY and there is a limit to wholesome resources.
    Thank you and best,
