  • 4 large eggs
  • 4-1/2 cups canned pumpkin
  • 1-1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 10 cups cubed French bread (1-inch pieces)
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


  1. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, pumpkin, milk, sugar, cream, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until blended. Gently stir in bread. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. Fill foil-lined muffin cups with bread pudding mixture. Bake 20-25 minutes or until firm to the touch.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small heavy saucepan, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook, without stirring, 2-3 minutes longer or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat; stir in pecans and remaining vanilla.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon sauce over each cupcake. Bake 5-6 minutes longer or until topping is set. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen.
