  • 4 cups cubed day-old whole wheat bread
  • 1/2 cup chopped dates or raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, divided
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Half-and-half cream or whipped cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. Combine bread cubes, dates and 1/3 cup pecans; place in a greased 2-qt. shallow baking dish.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine the milk, pumpkin, egg yolks, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and cloves. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; fold into pumpkin mixture. Pour over bread cubes and toss gently. Sprinkle with remaining nuts.

"What a lovely alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie. I served it warm with whipped cream (ice cream would have been good too.) Leftovers were still good a day or two later without getting mushy."

"My family loves this recipe. I used cinnamon raisin bread in place of wheat and baked it in individual ceramic pumpkins made by Temptations. It not only tasted great but looked cute and festive too."
