Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups Pumpkin Puree (fresh made or canned)
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • 2 Cups Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice Mix
  • 1.5 Pounds Toasted Bread Cut into Small Chunks
  1. Preheat oven to 350-degrees
  2. In a large pot, combine the Heavy Cream, Milk and Brown Sugar. Heat to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the Eggs and ½ Cup of Sugar. Whisk thoroughly until the sugar is dissolved and the eggs are lighter in color
  4. Using a ladle, temper the hot liquid into the egg mixture, whisking constantly. If you stop whisking, your eggs will curdle.
  5. When you’ve transferred half the liquid from the pot to the bowl, pour the whole thing back into the pot on low heat and keep whisking.
  6. Whisk in the Pumpkin Puree and remaining spices
  7. Fold in toasted bread until each chunk is fully soaked in the pumpkin egg mixture.
  8. Spray an oven-proof ramekin (or bundt pan) and pour the bread pudding mixture inside
  9. Place the pan in a larger container and fill with hot water until it comes up halfway the bundt pan or ramekin
  10. Cover the whole contraption with foil and bake for an hour and 15 minutes
  11. After that time, it should be set. Remove the foil and bake until the top is browned.
  12. Let cool and enjoy!
