Pumpkin Bread Pudding Recipe

To me, this Maple Pumpkin Bread Pudding recipe is the dictionary definition of a scrumptious fall breakfast. Whether you want to treat your family over the weekend or you have leftover pumpkin puree from making pie, this pumpkin bread pudding is a treat. Made with challah bread and sweetened with maple syrup, it is easy and quick to put together and oh so delicious. Serve it by itself or with a scoop of ice cream and accept the compliments from your friends and family.
