Caramel Pumpkin Pecan Bread Pudding

Nov
19

I knew I had to make this recipe as soon as I saw it. Caramel. Pumpkin. Pecan. BREAD PUDDING. A lovely reader, Brenda, kindly sent it to me. Several days passed. I got all the ingredients together. (I didn’t have the half and half.) The heavens opened. Light shined down. I was ready!!! I had everything!


Only I had completely lost her email with the recipe. Looked everywhere. New mail. Old mail. Deleted mail. (Not that I would delete it, but accidents happen.) The email had disappeared! The heavens closed up and my world went dark.

Okay, that is so dramatic.

But seriously, I was bummed.

However! Brenda came through and sent it to me again and I copied it like ten times to be sure I couldn’t lose it again. And then I made it.

And here it is! It’s delicious and it’s very autumn-ish and Thanksgiving-ish. I bet you could even make it with all milk instead of half and half, it would just be a little less rich. I used fresh pumpkin puree, but you can used canned solid pack pumpkin.

I bet you could even throw a little bourbon in there somewhere. Like a quarter cup in the bread pudding and a couple tablespoons in the sauce. I didn’t, because I’m out. (Too much Maple Pecan Pie with Bourbon.) But you can!

Of course I used Grandmother Bread for the bread in the recipe.

How to make Caramel Pumpkin Pecan Bread Pudding:

For the bread pudding
4 large eggs
2- 15 oz cans solid pack pumpkin or 2 pints fresh pumpkin puree
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup half and half
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
10 cups cubed bread pieces

Whisk everything together but the bread in a large bowl until well blended. Add the bread and stir well to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and chill 8-24 hours.

I totally didn’t do that, but you should. If you want to. I baked it right away. Because I’m like that. Impatient.

When you’re ready to bake it, spoon the bread pudding mixture into a greased 13 x 9 pan and bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for one hour. The original recipe called for baking this in ramekins. For me, it took a full hour to get done in a 13 x 9 pan. Adjust accordingly if you use ramekins. Also, you might need to cover the top with foil–the original recipe suggested that. I found it unnecessary. It browned just right without it. Except for a few burned nuts. Don’t be picky.

During the last 15 minutes of baking, start preparing the caramel sauce topping.

Caramel Pecan Sauce
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla

You need to heat the chopped pecans in a skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, just until lightly toasted. (Maybe five minutes.) Best thing to do is put those puppies in an iron skillet. Meanwhile, cook the brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in a small pot over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and pecans.

Remove the bread pudding from the oven and drizzle with the caramel pecan sauce. Bake for five more minutes or until sauce is thoroughly heated. Behold the giant pan of bread pudding with caramel sauce on top.

I burned some of the nuts on top. But I didn’t care.

It was THAT GOOD!

    I dearly love bread pudding and anything pumpkin! This will have to be a “must try” recipe. I do have the bourbon! (or rum would be nice, too!)

    It’s really good warm and with ice cream, but you can eat it cold. I usually eat it cold as leftovers. But first off, you probably want it warm from the oven!

    That looks SO good! I wonder if you can substitute walnuts for the pecans or if it just wouldn’t be the same? I’m thinking thanksgiving for this recipe, then there will be plenty of others to help eat it and it won’t just be me sitting here at 5:30am some morning finishing it off! :hungry:

    I disliked bread pudding when I was a kid, the texture was just too soggy bread like. But when in New Orleans I tried bread pudding and found it to be delightful. I think this will be something I make for the weekend after T-giving.

    I don’t see why you couldn’t substitute walnuts. I also think you could substitute some other puree or anything of that consistency–like apple butter! Can you imagine this with apple butter?!

    I guess I’ll be making that pudding today! Beloved loves bread puddings of any kind and pumpkin is just perfect for this time of year. Oh yes…..apple butter, that would be really good.

    I need to learn how to make apple butter. I have NEVER tasted fresh made apple butter! I feel so deprived suddenly….LOL

    A different reason to be Thankful…
    …almost two months ago, we had a scare with our 12-yo Princess. Big time. The kind that keeps you awake at night, unable to eat, not even able to follow a simple recipe. Watching a movie from begining to end and realizing afterwards you couldn’t even describe the basic plot. Pretending everything is hunky-dory. Wearing your mask you keep in a jar by the door for public purposes. Being scared about something you can’t control or fix.

    Then yesterday, the clouds parted, the sun came out and birds were annoucing their presence at the top of their lungs. She’s fine, every one of their medical tests is negative. She’s fine. We won’t complain once about 6:30 a.m. basketball practice. We’ve been dealing with the “what if…” alternative for two months.

    Oh Suzanne…that looks SOOO YUMMY!!! It’s a big dessert to make for just two people (we’ll be on our own for Thanksgiving this year :cry: )but we’ll sure enjoy dessert every night for about a week…WOOOHOOO!!! :hungry: As soon as I get this off to you….I’m going to VOTE and I sent the link to my family up in Canada and two of them voted yesterday and promised to vote every day until it’s over. I love my family…even my hubby is voting from work! :hungry2: (pitchfork!)

    Substituting apple butter for pumpkin–sounds really good. Probably would be a good idea to reduce the sugar, though.

    I’m going to try it with pumpkin first.

    I voted. I’ve posted to twitter and facebook. Those two chicks from California have me nervous. And I do NOT want to read about yoga.

    Hmmmm… I’m thinking the fact I like recipes for grandmother bread and bread pudding and I’m not reading about yoga is why my hips are this size. Fat and sassy! Woo hoo!

    Oh, YUM!! All the recipes look good, of course, but some of them must be bookmarked immediately. Like this one… :snoopy:

    I love pumpkin and my husband hates it! Hence I don’t bother making too much pumpkin stuff around here because I’d be the one eating it all! He didn’t even realize pumpkin was edible until he moved to the States–grew up in England and thought pumpkins were for jack o’ lanterns and animal food. It looks so yummy, though!

    opps, I put my note in the wrong spot. Let me try again.

    This looks yummy! It is now on my “to do list” along with an old donut post of yours that I found. I’m thinking this next weekend or sometime over the long holiday will be perfect timing for these.

    I read a book that teaches a new no knead refrigerator technique and I wondering if Grandma Bread will work for it. I’m putting that on my list too.

    Would it be as tasty without the nuts? Silly me doesn’t like nuts, could be because I am one, lol.

    I’m going to the library today. They have lots of computers. I wonder if they will let me use each one. The voting is too close for my comfort. We need to knock the competition out of the water!

    This part about waiting 8-24 hours…what’s up with that? But, seriously, all my recipes for bread pudding call for stale bread to improve the texture of the pudding — and it does seem to taste better. Have you tried that with Grandmother’s Bread?

    I love bread puddings and I love pecans! Pecans are SO EXPENXIVE here! Unbelievably very expensive, so I hardly ever buy them, but I love them! I know it would be best with pecans but I will have to substitute another nut, probably. I’m thinking about it. My grandmother used to have an extra large soft shelled pecan tree in her backyard in Memphis when I was little. Massive pecans we could shell with out fingers! It got a disease and died.

    I like all bread puddings. My favourite so far is Christmas plum pudding with rum or caramel sauce! Delicious! My mother used to make it from scratch when I was little and bake it in tin cans in the oven.

    Oh. My. Goodness!
    That looks amazing! I signed up to make bread (Grandmother bread rolls!) and cranberry sauce (which I’ve never made, but thanks to you I KNOW I can do it) – but I may have to add this to what I’m bringing!! :)

    This looks so good! By the way your grandmother bread looks much less dense than mine. What’s the secret? I’ve tried several bread recipes and they all turn out too dense. Does it have to do with the kneading? With the rising time I made your dough enhancer but it doesn’t seem to help with the dense-ness (is that a word?). Help!!!! I SO want to make healthy home made bread, but it has to be edible!

  94. 11-19

    pm

    Hi, Mariah! It’s always hard to tell because there could be different reasons. Are you adding too much flour? Also, kneading enough is important. And proper rise time. Try looking at each step along the way and trying different things. Making great bread is a lifelong journey! I’m always trying to be better. The more you practice, the better you get and the more you pick up on little things you do differently that make it better.

    You know, every morning I get up and tell myself that today’s the day I’ll get myself under control. Then some wiseguy goes and puts up a recipe I can’t resist. So now I guess I have to wait until after I try this one out.

    Hey Suzanne!

    That does look good! Can you believe I don’t think I’ve ever had any type of a bread pudding!

    ok, I have 2 pumpkins I need to cook, some grandmother bread that needs to be used up, and I am making this pronto! I begin my exercise routine on Monday so here’s to binging while I still have time :eating:

    We had never eaten bread pudding flavored with bourbon until we moved to Kentucky. Yes, Kentucky, one of the bourbon centers of the world. Of course they use bourbon in their bread pudding, and this teetotaler can tell you: It is GOOD!

    Is it REALLY bad that I looked at the picture of a stick of butter covered with brown sugar and thought THAT looked good??? I have to make this now too. I just happen to have some fresh pumpkin puree laying around looking for a good home…like my belly!

    Hey, this looks like a good recipe. I’ve never been crazy about bread pudding, but his one looks delicious. I am keeping this close by to make really soon.
    I voted for you again. And I’ll vote tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day….. I want you to win so badly!

    My husband’s favorite dessert is bread pudding. I am definitely making this and will think of you fondly for sharing the recipe. We live in the country but don’t have the farm element. Love your blog and yes!, I voted for you! Who else would I vote for?!

    Fabulous recipe. Will make this for Thanksgiving as my husband’s favorite dessert is bread pudding. I’ve made it with leftover cinnamon rolls but that doesn’t happen too often as there are rarely any cinnamon rolls left! And yes, I voted for you! Who else would I vote for?! Love your blog and I am a huge fan. Good luck!

    Becki, so glad your girl is okay. :happyflower:

    My granddaughter can’t touch or eat a nut (or most seeds). With cold stuff, I use granola instead of nuts for the crunch, but I’m coming up blank on what to use in a baked good. Oh, well, I can break the recipe into two smaller square pans & use nuts on only one.

    Mariah, every time my bread is dense, I’ve added too much flour. The dough gets less sticky as I knead, so I guess I was adding more flour too soon after I’d been kneading for a while. Don’t lose faith! You’ll find what works.

    I may have to make this. Last night we went to family night at our church and someone had made whoopie pies except the cake was pumpkin and the filling was cream cheese filling. It was so good!

    I’ve made the grandmother bread about 6 times now. Mine always comes out heavy . . . is that the same thing as what you are calling dense? Maybe I am adding too much flour also. Is the bread supposed to be really sticky when you start kneading? That’s why I added more flour. It’s still good, dense and all but I would like to be better at making it.

    Got a question for those with computer savvy. If I vote on a laptop and my daughter votes on the large computer, does it count as two votes? Or is it only one because both the laptop and the home computer are using the same modem?

    Suzanne–I just voted again, but this time I took a few minutes to look at a couple of the other contenders. Do you know those people encourage things like pilates and running to keep happy!!!!!! That cannot compare to chickens and goats and grandmother bread. Come on people–vote more often. (Go to the library and vote on every computer they have.)

    I had never cared for bread pudding until I tried some that a friend from “Naworlens” made and it was good. However, ANYTHING that’s covered in a stick of butter, 1/2 lb of sugar and a cup of nuts has GOT to be good. lol

    I voted too! Some days it lets me vote 2 times – if it’s about 12 hrs apart.

    OMG! How do you keep from gaining a hundred and one pounds!!! I was going to make some pumpkin cake with chocolate chips for this weekend’s pre-Thanksgiving bash with my folks up there in Madison, WV but I may have to fix this instead. If my sister-in-law doesn’t beat me to it, that is! And thank you, thank you for all the lovely pictures of the WV hills in autumn. I don’t get nearly as homesick as I used to – I just check out your postings every day.

    Hey Suzanne…thanks for your response. Yes, Yvonne, I mean heavy when I say dense. I’m after something fluffier, but not quite as fluffy as store bought bread. I like to have a little substance, but not something to use as a doorstop! Pamb, I think you’re right. I added extra flour probably too early because it was very sticky, but then I noticed it was pretty dry by the time I was done kneading. I’ll try less next time, and be more patient with the kneading. I’m enjoying journey, but I would like to reach the goal sooner rather than later! Thanks everyone! And thanks Suzanne! We love you!!! :-)

    Debbie, We have that set up and I have tested it. Both of ours registered a separate vote. I vote on the desktop and husband has his laptop on the same Modem. We both vote. When I read your comment, I thought I better check and be sure they both get counted. They do. At least ours do. For others? I’d say go ahead and vote on both, it might work like ours.

    Suzanne – I have to tell you, my mom and I made this recipe for Thanksgiving dinner in place of the “old standby” pumpkin pie. It was WONDERFUL! It got rave reviews around the big table and has officially been invited to the annual shindig from this day forward! Thank you for posting this! Lots of love from 12 grateful eaters, plus me!

    made this tonight for thanksgiving. used grandmother bread :) this was my first time ever making, or even tasting, bread pudding. it was fabulous. i think the sauce makes this dish. no one was excited to hear that i’d made bread pudding, but everyone gobbled it up and raved about it.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
