Ghosts and Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Contributed by: Joy White of TeeterKats Kitchen

Rich and delicious. "This recipe is one of my family favorites. I love to serve it during the Halloween Season and to top it off by adding the cute little whipped cream ghosts."

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups French bread cubes, toasted
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • whipped cream

Directions:

Place bread in a lightly greased 11x7 inch baking dish. Pour half-and-half over bread. Stir together sugar and next 7 ingredients, and gently fold into bread mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-to 60 minutes or until set.

When ready to serve, fill a plastic bag with the prepared whipped cream and drop onto dessert to resemble ghosts; make 16, one for each square. Make eyes with ends of candy corn.

Optional:

If you like, sprinkle shredded coconut around the top of the pudding to represent cob webs or smog.

Yummy. Yummy.

Serving Size: Makes 8 Servings
