Oven-dry Bread

Step 1

Preheat oven to 300°F. Place brioche bread cubes on a baking sheet and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, rotating halfway through and tossing bread, until bread cubes are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. (Leave oven on.)

Make bread pudding

Step 2

Butter a 13×9-inch baking dish. Add brioche bread cubes to the baking dish, pour melted butter over the top, and toss together with a spatula. In a large bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree,  C&H® Light Brown Sugar, pumpkin pie spice, salt, whole milk, heavy cream, egg yolks, eggs, and vanilla until sugar dissolves and mixture is completely smooth.

Step 3

Pour custard mixture over bread cubes. Let stand for 30 minutes to absorb the custard, tossing occasionally with a spatula. Increase oven temperature to 350°F.

Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before serving. Serve warm.
