I don't know why it took me so long to try this. It was awesome and I don't like bread pudding. I think it was the pumpkin that got me. I also used egg bread, Husband said it would be better with ice cream. So next time for sure. Thank you again for another keeper.

My wife makes great pumpkin bread, so I wanted to surprise her with my own delicious pumpkin treat. This one was easy enough for a novice baker. Pumpkin and cranberries--what's not to like?!

I like using extra vanilla and spices--at least double to add more flavor.
