Pumpkin Pie English Muffin Bake
Active Time:
25 mins
Total Time:
2 hrs 10 mins


  • 6 whole-wheat English muffins, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 firm apples, such as Honeycrisp or Pink Lady, peeled and chopped

  • ¾ cup raisins, divided

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 3 cups oat milk or low-fat milk

  • 1 (15 ounce) can unseasoned pumpkin puree

  • ¾ cup packed light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Place English muffin pieces on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake until lightly toasted, about 10 minutes.

  3. Combine apples, 1/2 cup raisins and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the English muffin pieces and toss to combine. Transfer to the prepared baking dish, spreading into a single layer and redistributing any raisins that fall to the bottom.

  4. Whisk eggs, milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, salt, ginger and cloves in a medium bowl until smooth. Pour over the bread mixture and press down so everything is submerged. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup raisins over the top. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing it down so it's directly on the surface. Refrigerate for least 1 hour or up to 12 hours.

  5. Bake the casserole at 350° until browned and a little crispy around the edges, but still creamy in the middle, 50 minutes to 1 hour. Let cool slightly before serving.


To make ahead: Prepare through Step 4 and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
