Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread Pudding is a treat I honestly want to enjoy all year round, not just during the fall months. This easy gluten free pumpkin spice bread pudding is topped with a fabulous maple caramel sauce that takes the layers of cinnamon pumpkin bread to the next level. It is also a dairy free pumpkin bread pudding and truly the best pumpkin bread pudding recipe I have had.

Bread pudding is usually a dessert I make around the holidays. Normally it has a traditional style vanilla flavor, with or without a caramel sauce. This dairy free bread pudding however has layers of pumpkin spice that is soaked into the fluffy and flavorful Kinnikinnick cinnamon raisin bread. I then smothered the top in a homemade dairy free maple caramel sauce that brings the perfect amount of sweetness for a fabulous saucy top.

Sometimes I find traditional style fall recipes like pies to get a little boring. This recipe will definitely spice up your Thanksgiving dessert, but I also think this would be fun to serve for a brunch. Often, being gluten-free, if we need to share a dish we worry if others will like it. Worry not my friends, this one is amazing and everyone is going to love it.

It is very exciting that we teamed up with Kinnikinnick for this post. Their bread is yummy and we love all of their treats. For this particular recipe I chose to use the cinnamon raisin bread. It is light, fluffy, and incredibly flavorful. It soaks up the pumpkin spice mixture like a sponge.

Process shots for pumpkin bread pudding

Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick. Cut the loaf of bread into cubes and place the cubes evenly into the baking dish. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, pecans and coconut milk. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread cubes and toss to coat every piece of bread. Allow it to sit for about 20 minutes to let the bread soak up all of the mixture.  Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Bake uncovered on the middle rack for 50 minutes, or until a butter knife comes out of the center clean. Once it is done baking you can prepare the caramel sauce.

To make the caramel sauce- In a sauce pan on medium heat add the butter, sugar, tapioca starch, coconut cream and cinnamon. Stir while the butter melts, about 6 minutes.

Bring to a simmer and remove from the heat. The sauce should have thickened and have a beautiful thin caramel consistency. Add the maple extract and pour over the bread pudding.

You are going to love serving this dish all fall long. Enjoy!
