Instructions

For the Bread Pudding

  • In a medium bowl whisk together cream, pumpkin, milk, sugar, egg and yolk, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • In a large bowl toss bread cubes with melted butter. Add pumpkin mixture and toss gently until everything is thoroughly combined.    
  • Transfer mixture to an ungreased 6-inch round or square baking pan. Place pan in air fryer basket. Set fryer to 350°F for 35-40 minutes, or until custard is set in the middle.  
  • You can also bake this in a regular oven at 375F for 30 minutes, or until custard is set in the middle.

For the Sauce

  • In a small saucepan heat maple syrup and butter over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Stir in heavy cream and simmer, stirring often, until sauce has thickened, about 15 minutes.  
  •  Let bread pudding stand for 10 minutes before serving with warm Maple-Cream Sauce.   

Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Bread Pudding

  • Place 1.5 cups of water in the inner liner of a pressure cooker. Place a steamer rack on top of this. 
  • Cover the bread pudding pan with foil and place the covered pan on the rack. For best results, use an aluminum or stainless steel pan. If you are using glass or Corningware, you may need to increase cook times.
  • Close the lid and set the pressure cooker on High Pressure for 35 minutes. Allow the pressure cooker to rest for 10 minutes. At the end of the 10 minutes, release all remaining pressure.
  • Check the custard for doneness. If it's still not set in the middle, cook under pressure for another 5 minutes. 
  •  Let bread pudding stand for 10 minutes before serving with warm Maple-Cream Sauce.   

Notes

  • You can also bake this in a regular oven at 375F for 30 minutes, or until custard is set in the middle.
  • Drizzle the sauce on warm for best results.
  • To make this gluten free, use gluten free bread to make the recipe.
