Pumpkin Coconut Bread Pudding


I have something to confess, I am not really a fan of pumpkin desserts. I know, I know, but the pumpkin I grew up eating is savory, Calabasa pumpkin cooked in coconut and shrimp paste (Ginataang Calabasa). Pumpkin desserts is not really popular in the Philippines.So when I moved here, I wasn’t really too excited about it. But you know who likes pumpkin pies and all that fall desserts? Jack and Gelly. And you know who else? Trader Joe’s lol. I do my weekly grocery at Trader’s and they literally shove all the pumpkin stuff on my face haha. I have a recipe for brioche bread pudding and I thought I’d make it with a little Fall twist. I also made the a crumble topping for this pudding and it just takes it to the next level. Coconut and Pumpkin just works. The extra texture is so so good and I must say, this type of pumpkin dessert is what I’m looking for.

Hope you like this recipe and let me know what you think☺️
