I am a kindergarten teacher and every other Friday at my school, different teams/grade levels take turns cooking breakfast for the staff. Last fall, I found myself intrigued by, and slightly obsessed with, all things pumpkin. Armed with my obsession and absolutely bored of preparing sausage breakfast casserole 2 times a year for 6 years, I set out to bring something new to the table. And so, in November 2010, this recipe for Challah Pumpkin Bread Pudding was born. I hope your tastebuds will fall in love with this sweet and savory treat!

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375’ F. Pour rum over raisins and stir. Let sit, at minimum, 30 minutes.
  2. Whisk together eggs, milk, both sugars, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, salt, vanilla, pumpkin puree, and melted butter until well combined. Set pumpkin custard aside.
