Tipsy Pumpkin Bread Pudding
I was asked by Dairy Farmers of Canada to create a potluck recipe for this month’s challenge. I wanted something very special for this dish. Something a little unique and of course seasonal. That was where Tipsy Pumpkin Bread Pudding came to be.
This can be easily made a head of time and reheated when ready to serve, so it makes a great dish to bring to a potluck for the holidays.
The Southern Comfort Toffee Sauce adds the right umph to the dish. Every adult at the party will be diving into this dessert but the little ones can still have the pudding with some cream or ice cream as the sauce has the alcohol.
This cooks up in a slow cooker and can be transferred to the party in the crockpot also for ease of reheating!
