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!

<p>That's sounds delicious! Is there anything that pumpkin doesn't make delicious? Thanks for sharing!</p>
<p>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.</p>
