Pumpkin Bread Pudding

I can’t believe it is November already, where is the time going.  Halloween passed, and Thanksgiving is coming up pretty soon.  Once you hit Thanksgiving then it’s suddenly New Years and you wake up wondering what happened.  My little Ella is already 8 months and standing up.  And i want to find a pause button, things need to slow down.

It’s fall and pumpkin is just something i love to bake with.  When i saw this Pumpkin Bread Recipe I knew right away what i was making.  I had never before made Bread Pudding but didn’t realize how easy it is to make.  I will be making this more often.

I also didn’t just want to use regular bread, i went for some brioche. This Pumpkin Bread Pudding is just amazing.  Next time i might try to add some raisins as well.

This recipe is part of the monthly Secret Recipe Club “assignment!” Every month you get a name of a blog and you need to choose ANY recipe from that blog and then blog about that recipe by a date. It’s a secret because the blog owner does not know you are doing this until the reveal date. My secret blog this month was Food Babbles, which is written by Kate. Kate is a stay at home mom and has a fabulous blog.  I spent a long time on Food Babbles trying to figure out what to make.  But at the end i decided to make something for the fall and with pumpkin.  If you haven’t visited Food Babbles you should go and check it out, so many delicious recipes.

      Heather, i know it is going way to fast. And she doesn’t want to be held, just wants to be independent and explorer and get into everything. The new thing is dog food :). We had a few nights weeks ago of no sleep and we couldn’t figure out what it was, but as it turned out she just learned how to pull herself up and stand up in her crib and didn’t know how to sit back down. So just fyi in case it happens to you. .

    I think that some dried cranberries in this would be fabu. Looks delicious.

    All I can say is that your family (and I!) are very lucky to have you use us as your food guniea pigs! Jealous that hubby gets to try your Thanksgiving feast while I am trotting the streets of Stockholm…. You are the best!

    It is, therefore, the responsibility of parents to make sure
    that their children understand and follow those rules.
    Never ever employ a slide, pin or another pointed article to hold the hair fixed in position as this might end up in a rupture of the swim
    cap. Meanwhile, those who are unable to curry political favor in Sacramento are
    stuck with the tab, one that will put some manufacturers out of business.

    Even if you are not thinking of playing the game outside and
    are just firing practice shots in your room, you should wear protective glasses.

    Many folk noticed that bending over to carry this
    out is a lot easier for themselves, so you can try things out
    to uncover the best way for you.
