Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread bread cubes in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until dry and lightly toasted; cool slightly.

  • Grease a 2-qt. rectangular or square baking dish. Remove 1 tsp. zest and squeeze 2 Tbsp. juice from orange. In a large bowl combine orange zest and next five ingredients (through pumpkin pie spice). Stir in bread cubes until moistened. Transfer to prepared baking dish.

  • Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Cool slightly on a wire rack.

  • Meanwhile, for icing, in a small bowl beat cream cheese and 1 Tbsp. butter with a mixer on medium until combined. Beat in powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp. of the orange juice. Beat in enough of the remaining orange juice, 1 tsp. at a time, to reach drizzling consistency. Drizzle warm bread pudding with icing.


For pumpkin bread, use a 1-lb. 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.
