Pumpkin Bread Pudding

This idea appealed to me, after I went to an Applefest in a nearby town. There were delicious looking pies, cookies and this bread pudding in a real pumpkin.

I used a small sugar pumpkin, then carved around the top to make a removeable cap and took out the seeds and stringy bits.

I made up a small amount of breadpudding, to fill it. Just from memory, using less of everything. It was delicious, the kids loved it!
