 Ingredients List

  • 3 1/2 ”“ 4 1/2 cups 1-inch bread cubes (depending on type of bread)
  • 7 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk (any kind)*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 ”“ 1/2 cup pumpkin butter (pumpkin puree is not sweetened, so you will have to add sweetener) Use more pumpkin butter for a sweeter result
  • 3-4 tablespoons brown sugar for topping
  • nuts, like pecan or walnuts (optional)


1. Cut any kind of bread into 1-inch cubes ”“ I recommend a crusty, whole grain variety, but sandwich bread will work, too. Just use enough slice to fill a lightly greased 9×13 baking dish quite full.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, pumpkin butter and pie spice until well combined. Pour over bread and push down with a spoon or your hands until it”™s all soaked and mostly covered. Cover with saran wrap or lid and refrigerate overnight.

3. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees, uncover and top with brown sugar, additional pumpkin pie spice and nuts (optional). Bake for 35-45 minutes or golden brown and no longer wet.

4. Serve immediately with maple syrup, honey or agave nectar. Alternatively, you can also mix pumpkin butter with plain yogurt to make a pseudo-anglaise.

5. Store leftovers in the refrigerator covered for up to a couple days.
