Turns out I have more Pumpkin recipes than I imagined 🙂 I considered taking a break from all this Pumpkin but then I thought why limit the awesomeness?
I have always been a fan of bread puddings, the eggy buttery deliciousness and the use of old bread always gives me comfort. It makes me feel warm inside out, you might thing I am mad but the use of leftovers to create something stunning always does that to me.
It makes me wonder that of all the talk of upcycle, of reuse or toe to tail or leaf to root. This is how really our grandparents used to eat. Nothing got wasted, nothing got thrown away.
This Pumpkin bread pudding is almost a representation of the thought. After all the testing for the client, I was still left with some roasted pumpkin. There was an apple which was looking with those “don’t let me die!” eyes, there were a week old sweet buns sulking in the back of the fridge at their loneliness and I decided to put them all together and make this delicious Pumpkin Bread Pudding with a boozy (well that is the fun, accept it!) apple caramel sauce. Make this for Halloween or for Diwali or why wait for a reason or occasion anyways 🙂 ?
