If you count calories or check sugar content this recipe is not for you. Just cover your eyes and continue on to the next post. If you hate us “Basic” women that love pumpkin and pumpkin spice skip on to the next post as well. I just want to be upfront about this. I love pumpkin and pumpkin spice year round. This concoction came about when I found three loaves of bread in the fridge labeled “for bread pudding.” Well if that wasn’t a sign I don’t know what is. So to be honest this recipe consists of a mixture of Japanese milk bread and Texas Sweet Toast bread, you can use only kind of sweet bread if that is what you have (Im looking at you King’s Hawaiian Rolls). White bread will work with this recipe. The rest of the ingredients are really straight forward and are part of my pantry basics.
Judging by the ingredients you might think this recipe is super sweet and its not. The only “sweetish” part is the caramel sauce topping, which even that is a little more salty since I always used salted butter. I know blasphemy, rag on me later. Focus on the important facts I said caramel and pumpkin in the same recipe.
As for the Halloween theme, Im obsessed with all things Halloween. I thought what better day to go live then Halloween. I love it so much that it actually plays a vital role in our house hunting queries. Does the neighborhood have trick or treaters? Do they have decorating rules? Know of any great neighborhoods out there? Seriously message me about them. Most of our decorations come from Target and Michaels. Animated decorations are my favorite and anything with sparkles. I have boxes of decorations I haven’t been able to use yet due to space or neighborhood regulations so stay tuned.
Later this week we will do a post that introduces us more but for now enjoy this Caramel Pumpkin Bread Pudding. Thank you for stopping by. Have a Happy Halloween.
