Pumpkin Spice Bread Pudding

By Chef Jeff Patton

“Bread pudding is such an underdog of a dessert, people either love it or don’t know that they love it. This one is great room temp with coffee in the morning, or warmed up with some cool whip after dinner and the pumpkin spice makes it feel just the right treat for any autumn day.”
