Pumpkin Bread Pudding
Fusion of two great desserts: pumpkin pie and bread pudding has been achieved in the laboratory. Emily made this recipe using brioche made from scratch. If you like the crispy bits, take a scrape off the top. If, on the other hand, you like warm custardy comfort, take a deep scoop. Pumpkin pairs very well with bread pudding, and this is worth a try. On the other hand, what doesn't pair well with bread pudding? Home-made brioche does take this up a notch - and the best part is that you have leftovers that can be frozen for french toast the next time you have a leisurely breakfast. Don't neglect a tasty bourbon or something similar... just the right amount adds great flavor.
