Pumpkin Bread Pudding

This turned out even better than I thought it might... I think chopped pecans would make it even better...
Pumpkin Bread Pudding
1 pound French bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 quart half-and-half
6 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 large can (29 ounces) pure pumpkin
2 cups golden raisins or dried cranberries
1 stick butter, melted
3 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons vanilla

Butter 10 x 15-inch baking dish. Heat oven to 350.
Pour half and half over bread cubes; set aside. In another bowl, combine eggs, sugars, pumpkin, raisins, melted butter, spices, and vanilla; blend well. Pour pumpkin mixture over soaked bread and stir to blend.
Pour mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes or more until set.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream or favorite dessert sauce.
Serves 16.

That one's going into my recipe files. I might just have to make a rum sauce to go with.

Sharon, what is a pound of french bread? One long loaf?

Constance, would you please post your recipe for a rum sauce? Might be guilding the lily (as my grandmother would say), but I'm good with that!

I think a rum sauce would be great. We're serving it with a Butterscotch Sauce for our ladies' luncheon on Tuesday.

Yes a pound of French bread is a long loaf. The ones I buy are labeled by weight, so that's why I put it that way. :)

OMGoodness, this sounds so very good. As for gilding the lily, might not rum-butterscotch sauce be nice?! LOL. It looks wonderful, I will be trying this in the future for sure.
