  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool slightly on a wire rack.

Instructions Checklist
  • Meanwhile, for icing, in a small mixing bowl beat cream cheese and 1 tablespoon butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Beat in powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of the orange juice until smooth. Beat in enough of the remaining orange juice, 1 teaspoon at a time, to reach drizzling consistency. To serve, drizzle icing over warm bread pudding.


For pumpkin bread, use a 1-pound loaf from a bakery, bake a loaf from a mix, or bake a loaf from scratch. Then taste your pumpkin bread before determining the amount of pumpkin pie spice you want to use.
