Pumpkin-applesauce bread pudding

1 loaf Metropolis Baking Company golden duram bread (challah or other slightly sweet white bread will work too), preferably stale
3 eggs
1/3 c brown sugar
1/3 c molasses
1/2 c applesauce
1/2 c pumpkin butter
1 c cream
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cardamom
2/3 c currants

Cut the bread into as many 1-inch cubes as will fit in a 8x8 or 9x9 square baking dish. If the bread isn't stale, let it dry on the counter for a while, or put the cubes in a warm (~250 F) oven for a while (I did the latter). Mix everything else together. Combine the liquid and the bread cubes, making sure the cubes get coated and the currants get distributed. Put in a buttered pan and bake at 350 F for 30-45 min or until the liquid is nowhere runny (baking took longer than I expected, your mileage may vary).

Top with fresh whipped cream or other tasty substance of your choice. Adding some apple slices or cubes would work well too, or some chopped nuts.
