Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pecan Bread Pudding
Make this fabulous and flavorful Slow Cooker Pumpkin Pecan Bread Pudding for your family soon. Cooked in a slow cooker means it is easy to put together and plenty of time in the cooker so that the scents of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and other spices will waft throughout your home and keep every one checking in to the kitchen to see when this delectable dish will be ready.

Be sure you use old bread, and preferably a whole load (not pre-cut) made from something like an Italian bread recipe. These loaves are much sturdier and so when they have the eggs and other ingredients poured over them, they bake to a really nice consistency, far better than just a standard cut loaf. As well, be sure the loaf is at least 24 hours old, and older is even better. Then, allow plenty of time for the liquids (the milk, eggs and so on) to soak over the bread. Some recipes call for the bread to be soaked for at least 24 hours. Here that time is not needed because of the very slow cooking time. If you like, you can use a whole wheat or even a grain loaf as part of the recipe. Its robust flavor takes on the seasonings really well, and pumpkin is fabulous with it, too.
This is a simple recipe that takes its time in the cooker. The result? A sweet, moist and warm pumpkin bread pudding that you and your family will really enjoy.
