Written By Cynthia Annett-Hynes Dessert / Recipes Apr 6, 2011 Pumpkin Bread Pudding SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestWhen I asked Jesse Blades, chef at the Village Restaurant in Oak Bay, for this month’s feature dessert, he confessed it would take some work to get his mother to give up her secret recipe. Try it, and you’ll be glad he succeeded!Ingredients:1 cup heavy cream¾ cup canned pumpkin puree½ cup whole milk½ cup white sugar2 large eggs + 1 egg yolk¼ tsp. salt¾ tsp. cinnamon½ tsp. ground ginger¼ tsp. ground allspice¼ tsp. ground cloves5 cups challah bread (preferably home made), cut into 1” cubes1/3 cup melted butterMethod:Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9” x 13” glass baking dish. In a bowl, whisk together all ingredients except the bread and butter. Set aside. Throughly toss the challah bread cubes with melted butter in a large bowl. Pour pumpkin mixture over the challah bread cubes and mix gently (you don’t want to mash up the bread too much!) Transfer to the prepared baking dish and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the custard has set. Makes 9 servings (or 6 if you really like it!)
