This was very easy to make especially with a 5 year old! The flavors are fantastic, stuffing the pumpkins (we made 2 medium-sized) was so easy and they'll look incredible on my sister-in-laws table! The hardest part was trying to re-find the recipe. I used a whole loaf of Costco's raisin bread, I'll add more liquid next time. Excellent!
I have made this several times and it always gets rave reviews. It is easy enough to make (especially when pressed for time and the pumpkin is omitted), and makes a wonderful presentation. Tastes great too!
If I could give a ten star review I would. I had to scrape the bottom of the pumpkin for seconds for some. Two guests who said they did not care for bread pudding licked their plates clean. The lemon sauce was so easy to make and just was fabulous. Wow!
I cooked this for a luncheon at work and it got rave reviews! The top of the bread pudding was a little dry so maybe stirring once during baking? But once you got to the middle of the pumpkin and bread pudding it was scrumptious! I believe we will be making this for the BIG Thanksgiving Dinner!
I make this recipe for my daughter every year during october. SHE LOVES and looks forward to it. I instead use little individual pumpkins, so everyone has their own little pumpkin. I've also substituted limoncello for part of the lemon juice to give the sauce a little kick!
