Easy gluten free bread pudding with pumpkin
Paleo bread pudding
O that humble bread pudding…. I have an enormous soft spot for anything that even looks remotely like a bread pudding. I’ve made savory versions, version with sour dough, sweet version with all sorts of different fruits and now I’m sharing with you this delicious version which is gluten free and paleo.
Also – because I have used pumpkin in the batter – it is quite sweet naturally so you could consider leaving out the 25 ml of maple syrup that I added. It will probably still be totally delicious. I say probably, because I didn’t test it without. So you’re on your own if you want to try it… 😉
Is it really a bread pudding?
To be entirely honest with you guys. I always struggle with naming desserts like this. Because let’s be honest: there is no bread involved here and even though the taste and texture do resemble the good old bread pudding it is really something different. Not less tasty though!
And the good news is that you can have this dessert when your gluten free or paleo friends come along. Win win. Because everyone will love it!
More paleo recipes
If you’re wondering why you suddenly see an increase in paleo recipes, that can easily be explained. I have an assignment for the Dutch paleo magazine to create all the recipes, do the styling and photography and even have my face in the magazine. It’s quite a job and part of the reason why I wanted to be able to use the recipes here as well. Just makes live easier and there are so many recipes now that I will never run out! Plus they are tasty and delicious, no matter your eating habits.
