I was very lucky to be joined by a group of fiends, mostly from work, to help me hand out candy this year. To add to our celebration I made Pumpkin Tres Leches which is a moist and creamy bread pudding type dessert. “Tres leches” means three milks in Spanish and it’s the basis for a popular Mexican cake often served for the holidays and weddings. The cake is soaked with the milks and it essentially creates a rich, decadent bread pudding that I believe is best served cold. Warm bread pudding enthusiasts don’t you give me that stink eye.

Pumpkin Tres Leches Bread Pudding

2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup apple cider
1- 17.5oz box of Trader Joes Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix (not cake mix)
1- 12oz can evaporated whole milk
1- 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup whole milk
whipped cream, for serving

1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a ceramic or glass baking dish (not metal) with butter. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, combine eggs, oil and whisk until foamy. Slowly whisk in cider.  Add mix and slowly fold in then stir until batter is smooth.

3. Spread batter in dish and bake 45 to 55 minutes until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

4. Meanwhile combine evaporated, sweetened condensed milk and while milk in a medium bowl and whisk until well combined.

5. After baking, and while the bread is still piping hot, create several small but deep slits with a sharp knife all over. Immediately ladle the cold milk mixture over the hot bread. It will take a couple minutes to absorb the milk so ladle a little at a time until fully absorbed. Repeat until all the milk is used. The absorption will slow down but trust me, it will soak it all up in time.

6. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours minimum, or overnight. Using a spoon, scoop out some bread pudding and serve cold with whipped cream.

Tips: You can add rum to the milks to make it a tipsy bread pudding. Avoid using some of the flavored sweetened condensed milks now available. It might sound like a good idea to use pumpkin spice sweetened condensed milk but it is not. That stuff is terrible.
