Pumpkin Bread Pudding

I have been on an absolute pumpkin "binge" if you will. This happens to me in the fall, I go a little crazy. I was stalking other peoples blogs and noting their recipes and came across pumpkin bread pudding a LOT! I have never even heard of this! I have never made bread pudding but it's something I love to eat. While I love the traditional pumpkin desserts, I thought it a good idea to try out a new thing or two.

This tasted JUST like pumpkin pie. This recipe asks that you use bread crumbs and its was delicious but I am intriguied to know what it is like with bread chunks. Regardless, I loved this dessert. The recipe called for raisins but I didn't care for that so I ommited them and I added toasted pecans to give it a little "oomph" but its great even without them :) Oh and this is a lower-fat version and you'd never guess! I topped with fat free whipped topping and it was tastyyyy...mmmm...pumpkin

I recently made pumpkin bread pudding, but I am intrigued by your lower fat version! I felt incredibly sinful eating my version, which was definitely nowhere near low fat....I'm going to keep this recipe in mind for the next time the craving hits!
