If you are all tricked out….here is a treat you can make (because you need a sugar rush too…). Once you have enjoyed the one loaf of pumpkin bread. So something outrageous, and totally fattening. Make it into bread pudding….pumpkin bread pudding. You can add in 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans….I would except for that kids with the darn nut allergy. So I just sprinkle mine on top after. But go ahead…add it in.. You won’t regret it! This is not really custardy, so if you prefer you can add another egg and 3/4 cups milk. But for me this is JUST right. The bread on top is nice and crunchy and the bottom is sweet and has a caramel like taste…SO YUMMY!!
Cut loaf into 1" cubes. Put in a 9X13 baking dish and put back into a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes stirring ever 5 minutes until bread is toasted. Then in a large mixing bowl mix together 1 c brown sugar, 1 3/4 c milk, 1/4 c butter (melted), 2 eggs and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Add bread into bowl and toss till bread is coated with sauce. Bake at 350 degrees 40-50 minutes until custard is cooked through. I sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar lightly when it was done. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream (my fav).
