How to Make Susan's Pumpkin Bread Pudding


  • 1Preheat oven to 325°F. Place a large baking pan in oven with about 3 cups hot water in it; let this preheat while you prepare the recipe.
  • 2Spread the butter on the sliced bread, then cut the bread into cubes. Place bread cubes in the bottom of a 1-1/2 quart baking dish (one that will fit into the pan of water).
  • 3Stir together the brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg until well mixed. Sprinkle evenly over the bread.
  • 4Beat the salt with the eggs slightly. Beat in the pumpkin. Combine the evaporated milk, hot water,and cream; then whisk this into the egg mixture. Pour carefully over the bread.
  • 5Place baking dish in the pan of hot water. Bake about 35 minutes, or until set.
  • 6May be served with whipped cream, or topped with a hard sauce. See my recipe for Orange Hard Sauce below.

    I like pouring the hot Orange Hard Sauce over the entire casserole before serving.
