> Pumpkin Bread Pudding
This stuff is over-the-top delicious and likely to be a family favorite! You can prep it a day in advance and store it in the fridge then bake the following day but do be sure to serve it warm for best results.
- 1/2 cup (110g) packed light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup (105g) granulated sugar
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 4 large eggs
- 2 large egg yolks
- 1 1/2 cups half and half
- 1 cup whole milk
- 15 oz pumpkin puree OR 1 can pumpkin
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 (16 oz) loaf hearty crusty french bread cut into 1-inch cubes
- Salted caramel sauce, for serving
- 1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped, for serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and salt.
Whisk in eggs and egg yolks. Stir in half and half, milk, pumpkin and vanilla.
Place bread cubes in an extra large mixing bowl. Pour half and half mixture evenly over bread cubes then gently toss to coat. Let rest 10 minutes.
Spoon mixture into a buttered 12 by 8-inch or 13 by 9-inch baking dish (lightly press down on the cubes to even it out a little). Bake in preheated oven until set, about 45 - 50 minutes.
Let cool for a few minutes then cut and serve with salted caramel sauce, pecans and sweetened whipped cream.
