Yes, I’m all about my slow cooker! Not just for dinner, but dessert too. If you’ve never cooked sweets in there before you’ve got to try this pumpkin crockpot bread pudding! Here’s the recipe to one of our favorite breakfast crockpot recipes. (originally published 10/16, affiliate links present)

Slow Cooker Bread Pudding

It is not just for the chilly season, it can easily be made year round but quite frankly it’s perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas morning when you just want to sit and enjoy one another.

Looks easy enough right??!! Well nothing on my site is difficult, or does it require a lot of ingredients so you’ve got to give this one a try. Yes you can make cinnamon raisin bread pudding in your oven but during the hot summertime y’all don’t want to heat up your house anymore than need be.

Let’s talk a little bit about slow cooking shall we?? First off I have a few different varieties and I love them all. Each one has an occasion to be used like….

  1. This is my favorite 6 quart programmable one with a locking lid so it’s great for bringing to a potluck too.
  2. I prefer not to use liners, but rather just spray olive oil inside before adding my food for easier cleanups.

Let me give you a peek of my pretty thang I bought recently. It goes with my kitchen so I can just leave it out on the countertop all the time. 😉


Bread Pudding in the Slow Cooker

I have made crockpot pumpkin bread which was amazing so thought I’d follow it up with bread pudding plus a pumpkin flavor. It’s perfect when it gets chilly outside.

If you don’t have a larger sized crockpot this is my favorite one, and crockpot liners are great too for easy cleanup if you’d rather use those than non stick spray and avoid a bit of scrubbing.

Crockpot Raisin Bread Pudding

For this recipe you use a loaf of french bread like my banana bread pudding or after picking fruit try blueberry bread pudding too!! I discard the ends because you don’t want super hard pieces.

I think adding lots of raisins makes it super yummy and/or you could take the skin off an apple and dice it up layering it with the bread and/or raisins as well!

We cook something in our crockpot at least twice a week just because it’s a dinner dinner idea and we are super busy with 3 kids and both of us working full time. It’s a lifesaver of an appliance I say.

You don’t want to overcook it. It should be a bit wet, as bread pudding usually is to maintain it’s moist texture and ooey gooey nature. If you love this easy pumpkin crockpot bread pudding recipe you’ve got to try our caramel apple bread pudding too!

  • In a bowl combine milk, pumpkin, sugar, vanilla, and pumpkin spice. Mix well.
  • Cut loaf of bread into cubes, discard ends.
  • Spray inside of slow cooker with cooking spray or use a liner.
  • Add in 1/3 of bread, half of raisins, and pour 1/3 of pumpkin liquid on top. 
  • Cover with rest of cubed bread and raisins and/or diced apples. Pour remaining pumpkin mixture on top making sure all pcs of bread are covered. 
  • Push down bread softly with back of spoon to make sure all pcs have some  liquid on them (watch video). 
  • Cover and cook on high for 1.5 hrs. or low for about 2.5 hours (low turns out much better!). Lift lid off when done and gently stir so bottom of bread pudding is mixed with top pieces (bottom will be wetter so better if gently stirred before serving).
  • Melt a cup of vanilla or cream cheese frosting and pour over the top of each serving.

Looks and sounds delicious...... love the addition of Apples & raisins. The one question that I have that I'm just unable to find is the serving size. Can you please provide. Thanks and I'm looking forward to preparing the pudding!
