Pumpkin Bread Pudding with caramel sauce! I love making this, it's one of the easiest desserts to make and it always gets rave reviews!

I got this recipe from my sister who got this recipe from a friend who got it from a friend… and it is being passed on with rave reviews!  Now I know why!

This is a VERY simple dessert but tastes completely amazing!  Nobody would ever guess how quick it was to throw together.

Please, please, please do NOT skip the caramel sauce.  It is SO easy and such a great addition to this recipe!  I used cinnamon raisin bread… if you don’t like raisins any type of bread will work for this.  Try choosing a denser bread for best results.
