VEGAN BREAD PUDDING WITH PUMPKIN VANILLA SAUCE

Vegan Bread Pudding by Vegan Chow Down

Although this past week has still been a warm one, I feel like it’s time to start cooking and eating like it’s fall regardless of how hot it is ie: turn as many things as possible pumpkin flavored, sprinkle cinnamon on just about everything, and make cozy and comforting dishes!

After the last few posts which are pretty healthy and light eats, I also decided it’s time to make something for the (major) sweet tooth in me!

Vegan bread pudding popped into my head because it’s easy to whip up, almost all of the ingredients are pantry staples, and the pumpkin vanilla sauce gives it the perfect touch of fall.  It reminds me a lot of a pumpkin flavored cinnamon bun…which sounds amazing and might be next on my to make list!

Bread pudding works best with stale day old bread so it can soak up all the liquid. If you don’t have stale bread on hand, just cut some bread up and leave it out overnight and you will be ready to go the next morning.  You can use this recipe as a base and experiment with different flavor profiles and ingredients with both the bread pudding itself and the pumpkin vanilla sauce.  There are endless possibilities and you can use the season, upcoming holidays, or your favorite foods as your inspiration!

Whatever flavor this vegan bread pudding becomes, I highly recommend eating it with a big ol’ scoop of vanilla soy ice cream- SO good!

VEGAN BREAD PUDDING WITH PUMPKIN VANILLA SAUCE

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of stale bread, cubed
  • 3 egg replacers, I use Ener-G Egg Replacers
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk  
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • PUMPKIN VANILLA SAUCE
  • 1/2 stick vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy vanilla creamer
  • 1/3 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 1 TBS vanilla

Instructions

  1. If you don't have any stale bread and need to make some: cut bread slices into large cubes and let it sit out overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees.
  3. Grease a 9×13 pan with a slice of vegan butter and set aside.
  4. Make your egg replacers in a medium bowl as instructed on the package.
  5. To the egg replacers add the non-dairy milk, melted vegan butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and vanilla. Stir well to combine.
  6. Add bread cubes to the bowl. Stir to coat each piece of bread with the liquid mixture. Let the mixture sit for 3 minutes, then stir so the drier pieces on top are now at the bottom of the bowl. Let it sit for another 3 minutes.
  7. Pour into greased pan and bake, for about 50-55 minutes, uncovered. When it is done, the bread should look puffy from absorbing the liquid and toasty brown on top.
  8. While the bread is baking, make the sauce.
  9. Combine all sauce ingredients except vanilla in a small saucepan. Heat until melted, stirring to incorporate. Cook until it comes to a rolling boil, then remove from heat. Add the vanilla and stir well. Let the sauce cool down.
  10. When the bread is done baking, remove from oven. Spoon onto plate, add a big scoop of non-dairy ice cream (optional, but recommended for optimal deliciousness) and drizzle the sauce on top.
