- Start by cutting the day-old bread into large cubes.
- In a bowl, whisk together the next 8 ingredients until smooth.
- Butter our USA Pan Rectangular Cake Pan (#1606) then add the bread to the pan in an even layer. Pour the pumpkin mixture until the bread is entirely covered, and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.
