Also try this bread pudding with raisins or dried cherries in place of the snipped dried apricots.

Made this for some diabetic friends of mine & since they love pumpkin & apricots, I stuck to the recipe & its ingredient list! Then, in turn, shared it with friends of theirs along with a copy of the recipe! This was a really big hit, &, of course, the taste I got was wonderful, too! Definitely want to make this again just for myself! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC cooking game]
