This Comes from Miss Sandra Lee herself. A great cookbook called Semi-Homemade cooking 3. This also works well with molasses.

I was very disappointed in the flavor of this recipe. It has all the Fall flavors that I love, but the end result is very bland. I made my own hard sauce using Recipe #116105 Aunt Jeannie's Hard Sauce with rum instead of brandy. I doubt I will ever make this again.

This had great pumpkin flavor, terrific autumn-like comfort food; however, the pumpkin custard mixture was too thick for my preference - the bottom pieces of bread didn't soak up enough of the liquid and were just a touch dry, even after soaking for one hour. I'll probably just add a bit more milk or cream the next time I make it, because there WILL be a next time.
