  • 6 cups gluten free bread cubed
  • 14 ounces pumpkin puree
  • ½ cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk or non-dairy milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

Praline Topping

  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 tablespoons gluten free flour blend
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter


  • In a large bowl, add the gluten free bread cubes.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, add the pumpkin, eggs, milk, sugar, and spices. Mix well.
  • Pour the pumpkin mixture over the bread cubes and toss to coat. Pour the pumpkin-coated bread into a greased 9x13 casserole dish.
  • Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour. (Overnight is even better!)
  • Preheat the oven to 350º F. Set the oven rack to the middle position.
  • Chop your pecans into small pieces. Add the pecans and the rest of the praline topping ingredients to a small bowl. Mix well.
  • Sprinkle the praline ingredients over the pumpkin casserole and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Serve warm with maple syrup (optional.)


  1. You can use any brand or flavor of gluten free bread. You can also try my homemade gluten free bread recipe.
  2. Any gluten free flour blend will work in the praline topping. You do not need xanthan gum in the blend.
  3. Please use pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling.
  4. You can use pecans, walnuts, or any type of nut, or omit the praline topping altogether.
  5. This recipe will keep fresh in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Store in an airtight container.
