Ingredients

  • 8 slices cinnamon bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup water

Directions

  • 1. Place bread in a greased 3- or 4-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, pumpkin, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg; stir in cranberries. Pour over bread cubes. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
