Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Bread Pudding

Recipe by TishT

If you are like me you have a bit of canned pumpkin left after you make your pies so I have this recipe for what's left. Really good with ice cream.

My first attempt at dessert in my new pressure cooker, and what a success! Loved the flavors of the pumpkin and cinnamon bread ( I used non-raisin-don't like them-but may add some dried cranberries next time). Cooking time was spot on. I replaced half the sugar with Splenda and the brandy with dark rum (it is what I had on hand). Served with a dollop of sugar-free cool whip. Made for My 3-Chefs 2008.
