Pumpkin Chocolate Bread Pudding is full of pumpkin flavor filled with dark chocolate chips. Top it off with salted caramel sauce and a little whipped topping if you choose! The perfect fall dessert to serve your family or guests!
This week the Sunday Supper Movement is celebrating Fall Flavors. You will definitely want to check out the links at the end of this post for more yummy fall recipes!
I love this time of year. If it could stay fall forever, I'd be happy! I welcome fall for everything that is in it that I love. Things like the crisp and invigorating morning air, the cooler nights that make sleep easier, and warming recipes made with fall foods. Squash is probably my most favorite fall food item. Butternut squash is number one in my book, the pumpkin takes a really close second.
I was in the mood for something pumpkin and something that brought back some really comforting feelings from my past. My mom was good at making bread pudding and I always loved it. I rarely make bread pudding because its something Grumpy would rather not eat. I decided my desire for some good old fashioned comfort was not going to go away so I decided to try my hand at making bread pudding but add some pumpkin love to it. I made this with a pumpkin yeast bread that needed to be used up, topped with a little bit of caramel topping and sprinkled with a little bit of gray sea salt, then put some whipped cream on top to put it over the top! If you don't have a pumpkin yeast bread around the house, don't worry, you can use regular day old bread. I suggest a good sturdy bread though, not a loaf of bread you may buy to make sandwiches with, more like a crusty loaf you can buy from the bakery section of the grocery.
While Grumpy did not eat any of this bread pudding, I did take it to work. All I can say is between the 5 of us in the office, it was gone within a couple of days! It was a yummy
breakfast snack for all of us!

Great fall flavors!
This was EXACTLY what I was looking for!! We have a "pumpkin" theme at school and can't wait to try this
Lauren @ Sew You Think You Can Cook
That looks incredible! (seriously, picking jaw up from table) Love the addition of chocolate. I'll definitely have to try this (with sweet potato since I can't eat pumpkin).

I would have to eat this by myself at my house. (Because I wouldn't tell anyone about it 😉 )
Such beautiful photos! I love the one with the whipped cream on top.

You covered every food fantasy I could ever have -- bread pudding, pumpkin, chocolate and salted caramel. I pinned it -- it'll be on my Thanksgiving table if not sooner!
I can't believe Grumpy won't eat all this deliciousness! I guess that means more for you 🙂 Looks fantastic, as always!!
Renee@Renee's Kitchen Adventures
This looks amazingly delicious Shelby!!
Looks positively perfect for fall! I'd be happy to take his serving if there were any left!
WOW is all I have to say about your bread pudding! Caramel and pumpkin ?? I'm sold!

Fall is the time when I start to crave bread pudding. Yours looks delicious!
Oooh, this looks SO scrumptious!!! Bill would not eat it either, but that's just more for ME!
