Fabulous Pumpkin Bread Blog brought to you tonight by: Kim
How good does this look for Thanksgiving? Pumpkin Bread Pudding takes bite-sized chunks of bread and soaks them in a rich custard made with cream, pumpkin puree, brown sugar, eggs, butter, vanilla, and spices (ground cinnamon, ginger, and cloves). Doesn't that sound delicious? This is the perfect dish to serve in cooler weather or when we need cheering up. Goes great on the table with a turkey dinner. Mmm
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup canned solid-pack pumpkin
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs plus 1 yolk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
- Pinch of ground cloves
- 5 cups cubed (1-inch) day-old baguette or crusty bread
- 3/4 stick unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350° with rack in middle.
Whisk together cream, pumpkin, milk, sugar, eggs, yolk, salt, and spices in a bowl.
Toss bread cubes with butter in another bowl, then add pumpkin mixture and toss to coat. Transfer to an ungreased 8-inch square baking dish and bake until custard is set, 25 to 30 min. Let it cool and then dig in!
