  • 1 15 ounce  loaf French bread cubed
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons pumpkin pie spice


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup cold butter chopped
  • 1/3 cup pecans choped


  • Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray and place the french bread in the baking dish and set aside.
  • In medium-sized mixing bowl add the milk, cream, sugar, eggs, pumpkin, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice and whisk until combined.
  • Pour mixture on top of the bread, cover and refrigerate four hours or overnight.

For the topping:

  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • In small mixing bowl combine the brown sugar, flour, pumpkin pie spice, and butter with a pastry cutter or two forks. Add in the pecans and stir until mixed together. The mixture will be clumpy.
  • Just before baking, sprinkle the topping on top of the french bread custard.
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes.. At 30 minutes check to see if it’s getting too brown. If so, make a tent out of aluminum foil to shield the top of the casserole.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with maple syrup and butter.
