  • Preparation Time 45 minutes
  • Cooking Time 2 hours 30 minutes
  • Yield 12 - 16 servings
  • Pumpkin Loaf:
  • ½ cup unsalted Butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup pure Pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1+½ teaspoons Baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon Baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground Ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • Custard:
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • ¼ cup packed Light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup fancy Molasses
  • 3 cups Milk
  • 1 cup Whipping (35%) cream
  • 1+½ teaspoons round Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground Allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground Clove
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease a 9" x 5" loaf pan and line the sides with parchment so that it comes up the sides
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl and add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Whisk the pumpkin puree and milk together and stir this into the butter mixture. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger and cinnamon and stir this into the batter until incorporated. Pour into the prepared pan and bake the cake for 60-70 minutes, until a tester inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool the cake for 30 minutes in the tin before turning it out to cool completely. The loaf can be made a day ahead and wrapped until ready to use (or is delicious all on its own!)
  3. Once cooled, cut the loaf into 1-inch (25 mm) cubes and place them into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and egg yolks and then whisk in the brown sugar, molasses, milk, cream and spices. Pour this over the pumpkin loaf cubes, stir to coat and let this sit for 10 minutes to absorb, stirring once or twice – don’t be concerned if the pumpkin loaf breaks down a bit as you stir
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9-inch springform pan. Line the outside bottom and sides of the pan with tin foil (to prevent leaks) and place the pan in a roasting pan or other dish that can be filled with water. Pour the bread pudding mix into the springform pan and fill the roasting pan with boiling water. Bake this for about 90 minutes, until a tester inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean Remove the pan from the water bath onto a cooling rack to cool to room temperature, then chill for at least 4 hours before serving

Serve the gingerbread pudding sliced into wedges and topped with whipped cream
