Brown Sugar Pecan Pumpkin Bread Pudding ~ Perhaps I should not even be talking about this just yet, but this has been on my mind. It’s known that the holiday season can be a bit overwhelming and a bit of a drag for some of us. Ok, no wait, I am going to say for most of us at some point during the next two months or so there’s going to be a moment when you just feel the holiday exhaustion. It might not be a huge moment, it might only be a split second, but nonetheless we will all have one (or maybe a few) of those experiences. When you find yourself there, it that space, in that place, take a moment, breathe. There are going to be days ahead when you want to just cozy up and hide under the covers (yes, please!) these are the times to be thankful for an easy to throw together breakfast or brunch that can carry you into the week of crazy. A warm dish of pumpkin bread pudding finished with a slightly caramelized pecan topping can bring you to a happy place in this Brown Sugar Pecan Pumpkin Bread Pudding recipe. We made this over the weekend and to my delight I have decided this will be made again and again until the end of the year. The recipe is fairly simple and the results are a sure fire way to help ease us all on through to the new year.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using the Tablespoon of butter, grease a 9 X 13 pan and set it aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine pumpkin, cream, eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Place bread cubes into the prepared pan and spread out evenly. Pour pumpkin mixture slowly over the top until all poured onto the bread cubes. Use the back of a spoon to gently press the cubes down into the pumpkin mixture to coat all of the cubes. In a small bowl combine topping, brown sugar, pecans, and salt. Next sprinkle topping over the top of the bread cubes evenly. Once finished, place into the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until lightly golden on the top and the pudding is cooked through.
  3. Remove from the oven and serve.
