This week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe was for Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Caramel Rum-Raisin Sauce and was chosen by Carmen of Baking is my Zen. Check out her blog for a fantastic tutorial on how to make this great dessert! She had a great idea of test running this recipe as a possible dessert for Thanksgiving.
I have never eaten bread pudding of any kind before, and to be honest, it never really sounded appealing to me. One of the reasons I started this blog and joined this group was to expand my horizons, and am I ever glad I did! This was great! I didn’t have a chance to make the caramel rum-raisin sauce, and I can only imagine how much better this would have been with the sauce. The only other change I made was to use challah bread instead of brioche…it was a miracle I found the challah bread in this town, and no one had even heard of brioche before. If you’re looking for a recipe to impress the in-laws for Thanksgiving this year, this would be a good one!
