This boozy pick-me-up is a perfect warming, welcoming beverage after long travels on a cold day.

For our Jansal Valley® Pumpkin Butter, sweet Cinderella pumpkins are whipped to a butter-like consistency and spiced with cinnamon, clove, and cardamom, perfectly capturing the flavors of fall. Use it as a spread on toast or pancakes, as a pie filling, or mixed with Parmesan as a filling for homemade ravioli.

Here we've used it in a delicious warm beverage, perfect to welcome guests throughout the holiday season. Cheers!


Pumpkin Spiked Latte



½ C Jansal Valley® Pumpkin Butter

2 T Jansal Valley® Maple Syrup

1 t Jansal Valley® Pumpkin Pie Spice

½ C Heavy Cream

1 ½ C Whole Milk

4 shots Espresso or 1 C very strong coffee

8 oz Dark Rum or Bourbon

1 T Honey / for rimming

2 T Granulated Sugar + 1 T Pumpkin Pie Spice / for rimming

Cinnamon Sticks / as garnish



In a small sauce pan, combine the pumpkin butter, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and heavy cream. Bring to a simmer while whisking, then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Add the whole milk and espresso. Stir together, and allow to heat gently to prevent burning the milk.

Meanwhile, roll the rims of the glasses through the honey, followed by the sugar & spice mixture.

Ladle the latte mixture into serving glasses, and garnish with a cinnamon stick and a dusting of pumpkin pie spice.

½ t Jansal Valley Cinnamon

1 t Vanilla

Cut off the top of the pumpkin, making a large enough opening to fit a hand into. Scrape out the seeds and strings. Discard the strings, but save the seeds for baking if you’d like! Set the hollowed pumpkin aside. 

In a medium bowl, mix together the bread and cranberries. Set aside.

In another medium bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients on top of the bread cubes and cranberries. Mix just until evenly incorporated.

Pour the bread pudding into the hollowed pumpkin. Cover the pumpkin with aluminum and place the pumpkin top on top of the aluminum. Bake covered for 1 hour. Removed top and aluminum. Bake uncovered for another 30–45 minutes, or until the bread pudding looks golden brown on top.
