The best Pumpkin Bread Pudding recipe! This dessert has perfect richness & texture, with a blend of buttery croissants, bread and pumpkin custard. Top it with Maple Caramel Sauce for a lusciously decadent treat. It is so easy to make and perfect for a cozy fall day!
For the croissants & bread- tear into small pieces.
I have 2 tricks to share with you to essentially ‘skip’ waiting for bread to get stale.
#1- Lay out the pieces on a baking sheet. Let the bread & croissants sit out on the counter for 6 hours or so, to dry up. This technique works well if you have some time to spare.
#2 -If you are short on time, you can cube up the bread & croissant pieces and bake it off at 300° until dry and toasted, about 20-30 minutes. Be sure to toss pieces around halfway through baking. Allow to cool before using in recipe.
Store leftover bread pudding in the fridge.
