Pumpkin bread pudding

Any recipe with pumpkin and cinnamon is one for me. I’m such a sucker for autumn desserts. If you’re a carb lover then this is one for you too. French bread, pumpkin and cinnamon and warm, oh my goodness! Heavenly scent and heavenly taste.

 

I ate way too much of this so I don’t think I’ll make it often. Willpower, what’s that?

    Oh I’m like you…put pumpkin in anything and I’m there, add cinnamon and caramel? Oh dear me. Thanks for the recipe. I hope that I forget all about it. ☺ It looks too too too amazing.

  3. I have only attempted an upside down bread of any type once and well, it didn’t go so well. I think that’s scared me off from reattempting. This looks fabulous! It may inspire me to give upside down bread another shot!! Thanks for sharing :-)
