  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Toss the bread cubes with the cream and soy milk in a large bowl until the liquid has been absorbed; set aside.
  3. Beat the eggs in a separate bowl; whisk in the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Pour the pumpkin mixture and raisins over the bread cubes. Toss gently until evenly combined. Refrigerate 30 to 60 minutes.
  4. Divide the mixture between 8 6-ounce ramekins. Bake in the preheated oven until the pudding has firmed and the top has turned golden brown, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and allow to stand 30 minutes before serving.

5 stars because this was delicious-- but I did make some significant changes. Instead of French bread I used whole wheat cinnamon-raisin bread, then skipped adding raisins. Instead of the cream and soy milk, I used 2 cups whole milk. Instead of puree I used a can of pumpkin pie filling, and then didn't add the cinnamon. I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup, and added a cup of walnuts. Cooked in two square pans for 40 minutes- but next time will check it sooner. Absolutely heavenly dessert that everyone raved about.

Just awful. Followed the recipe exactly. Dessert is my specialty and this was an absolute flop. Tasted so bad I had to chuck it out. :(

This was heavenly (if you like pumpkin). I used 1% milk instead of the soy milk and 1 cup half and half instead of the heavy cream. Used a long french bread loaf. Made it in a 9x13 pan and baked at 350 for about 40-45 minutes. Some people liked Cool Whip on theirs but I preferred just the bread pudding. My adult daughter could not get enough of it and all my guests liked it also. I will make this again and do the same things as it was very good.

Overall was very good! I used reg milk and it came out fine. I am not a fan of raisins, so I add some milk chic chips. I also put in a 9x13 glass dish and baked for 45 minutes and it was perfect.

Xmas got here too quickly, so I didn't have any French bread or raisins, but it still turned out excellent with honey wheat and a little vanilla whipped cream on top. My guests (my S.O.'s parents and grandparents, all Jewish/Ukrainian immigrants) loved the dessert. I generally love bread pudding anyway, and this one is no exception. Other recipes may suggest a sweet topping (strusel or such), but the sweetness of this by itself is perfect IMHO without being too sweet. I wasn't sure what ramekins were, so I just divided the mixture into two casserole dishes. One might have been enough, but I wanted to ensure this cooked evenly all the way though. Thanks, Vivi!

This is delicious! I am not a fan of soy milk and I had no cream, so I just used 2 cups of 2% milk and it tasted wonderful. I used 2 cups of puree pumpkin from my garden which made it an even more special treat. My other small change was that I only had dark brown sugar, so I used 3/4 cup of that and 1/4 cup white sugar so the flavor wouldn't overwhelm the pumpkin. This is one of the best bread puddings I've ever eaten. I highly recommend it.

Even my mother in law loved it!! Only thing I changed was 1/2 cup of brown sugar instead of whole cup.

Super duper Good! Dh came home just as it was coming out of the oven, he ran to the freezer, got the Ice Cream and then ask if he could have some! I did use a multi grain bread, and more then 6 cups more like 8-so I added one more cup of cream and it worked out excellant!
