Introduction: Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Recently I was able to visit the New Orleans and Lafayette area in Southern Louisiana and I had a wonderful time. We ate delicious seafood and went on a Segway tour around the French Quarter, many wonderful memories. Several times I ate bread pudding and each place had their own recipe. I decided to come up with my own. Since Fall is here, I wanted to incorporate pumpkin into my recipe.

Step 1: Ingredients

For this recipe you will need:

12-15 slices bread

8 ounces heavy cream

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 stick butter or margerine

4 eggs

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 can pumpkin puree

1/4 cup rum

Step 2: Tear Up the Bread

Tear up each slice of bread into small pieces, approximately 1" square. Place pieces into a large mixing bowl.

Step 3: Mix Ingredients

Melt the stick of margarine or butter and cool.

In a separate mixing bowl, blend together the eggs, pumpkin, cream, sugars, salt, rum, cinnamon.

Slowly add the melted margarine and stir well.

Step 4: Pour Over Bread

Pour mixture over bread and mix with large spoon until well coated. Pour into a greased large loaf pan.

Step 5: Bake

Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour & 15 minutes or until knife comes out clean.

Step 6: Cool and Slice

Serve warm or refrigerate.

Step 7: Glaze

Mix 2 cups powdered sugar with 2 tablespoons rum and 2 tablespoons heavy cream. mix well, add more powdered sugar until you get the consistency you want. Pour over each slice of bread pudding just prior to serving. Enjoy!

It was very good! Not difficult at all, which is a plus! You could add pecans if you wanted...I didn't have them on hand but probably will next time.
