Specialty Recipe

Pumpkin Raisin Bread Pudding

Ingredients
3-1/2 cups half & half or 2 cups half & half plus 1-1/2 cups milk
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup dark raisins
4 Tablespoons butter
8 cups bread cubes, preferably bakery bread (i.e. farm, sourdough, semolina, etc.) or 16 slices cinnamon raisin bread cut into cubes
1-1/2 cups canned pumpkin
7 eggs
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
Cinnamon sugar
Half & half

Spray a 9 x 12-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Simmer half & half (or half & half with milk) with butter, sugar, and raisins until sugar dissolves and mixture is hot but not scalding. In a bowl, thoroughly blend pumpkin, eggs, maple syrup, vanilla, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Slowly whisk the pumpkin and egg mixture with the half & half mixture. (If mixture begins to curdle, the half & half mixture is too hot and should be allowed to cool.) Pour mixture over bread cubes. Allow to soak for one-half hour or overnight, pressing down with spatula so mixture is absorbed.

Put mixture into baking dish. Sprinkle pumpkin seeds over surface of pudding. Top with cinnamon sugar. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 45 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven. Brush surface with half & half and bake a few minutes longer until sugar has melted and pudding is glazed. Serve hot from the oven. Delicious served withCranberry Apricot Compote. Enjoy!

Serves: 12 generously
