The flavors of pumpkin pie combine to create this decadent Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding with Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce.
Fall is here in full force and the holidays are right around the corner, which means it’s time for decadent, comforting desserts for everyone. Which brings us to pumpkin pie bread pudding with homemade salted caramel sauce. It is all things good and tastes like the holidays. All of the flavors of pumpkin pie combine with homemade brioche bread and it’s topped off with a sinful salted caramel sauce. Tell me, what’s not to love about that??
Just look at that deep golden caramel sauce. I could literally eat the whole batch by itself. But I won’t because it’s seriously delicious drizzled all over the top of a big helping of pumpkin pie bread pudding.
This was my first attempt at making caramel sauce and while it takes a little bit of time, it’s not terribly difficult. It’s mainly a lot of stirring and babysitting to make sure it doesn’t burn. If you’re pressed for time, feel free to use your favorite prepared caramel sauce.
I made homemade brioche bread with this recipe. It’s very easy to make this tender, delicious and slightly sweet bread. But you can absolutely use store bought brioche bread if you want to save yourself a few steps. Brioche is a perfect bread for soaking up all of that delicious pumpkin custard.
Pumpkin pie bread pudding with homemade salted caramel sauce is a fantastic dessert, but it would be an awesome brunch dish, as well. If you have overnight guests for Thanksgiving, think how delicious this would be served to them the next morning. I think you would have a table full of very happy people.
