Pumpkin Bread Balls?

28 Nov

Got too much pumpkin bread? Why not turn it into a “cake ball”? Pair it with a delicious cream cheese frosting and you’d be set.

This idea first came to me from my awesome sister, have you been over to Banana Bluebird yet? You should she’s pretty talented.

Anyways she suggested to me that I should try turning pumpkin bread into pumpkin balls. So here today I bring to you Pumpkin Bread Balls!

To make these you will need some pumpkin bread. And some cream cheese frosting. Since I made the bread in this post, I’m going to leave that step out and show you how to make the frosting instead.

For the frosting you need:

1 package of cream cheese, softened

1 stick of unsalted butter, softened

2 c sifted powdered sugar

2-3 tsp milk

pinch of salt, if frosting is too sweet

To make these awesome bite sized bread chunks, start with the frosting.

Cream together the cream cheese and the butter

Sift in the powdered sugar. No sifter, try a sieve:

Stir well.

Add the milk to make your frosting smooth and creamy

Now set your frosting aside, for use in just a minute.

Remove the crust from your bread. You don’t want the chunks it will leave when you are done.

Then cut your bread into pieces and place in a large bowl:

Now using your mixer blend these with approx. 2/3 c of your frosting. The amount will vary based on the amount of bread, the consistency of your frosting, and how moist your bread is to begin with. The drier the bread, the more frosting you will need.

You will know you have enough when you scoop one out and it holds its shape nicely

Now scoop out and roll into balls

Then dip into melted white chocolate coating, let dry and you are done!

I would at this point trim off the excess coating, it gives a nicer presentation when you are done.

So if you are tired of plain old pumpkin bread, why not turn some into bite sized bread balls? They are delicious and make a great addition to any Thanksgiving dessert table.

Until next time,

Happy Baking!
