This is a fantastic way to use up an extra loaf of pumpkin bread or even banana nut bread! Omit the rum if you like.
This was wonderful. I made an extra loaf of pumpkin bread so I could make this. The rum sauce is what makes it. I added a scoop of whipped cream on top and it was perfect. The baking time seemed too short. I baked mine for about 50 min. - 06 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I had some leftover pumpkin cake that I used in this recipe and I omitted the sugar so it wouldn't be too sweet. I think this is a versatile recipe that you could use other types of bread like cinnamon/raisin. It was quick, easy, and delicious. I will probably make about half the caramel sauce next time since I had so much leftover. Thanks for the recipe! - 30 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was truly great! I used the Taste of Home pumpkin bread recipe because it makes two loaves of awesome pumpkin bread, and for this to be a good recipe you've got to start with a terrific recipe for pumpkin bread. The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 was because the amount of rum in the sauce is way too much for most peoples taste. You could easily use 2 TBSP of dark rum instead of 3. I ended up boiling the sauce in the microwave for 5 minutes just to boil off all the alcohol and give it a nice rum "flavor" instead of "god there's a lot of rum in this!" I also ended up diluting the sauce with a bit more caramel and heavy cream. So, truly a good recipe made better with a few adjustments. - 01 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
