  1. It’s entirely possible I’m being dense, but in the ingredients you call for division of the cream into 1 and 2 cup portions, but then the directions just say to mix the cream with the eggs and other ingredients. Is there a reason for the division that I’m missing? (I’m baking your gluten-free pumpkin bread right now, and planning to make the bread pudding as one of our Thanksgiving desserts. I don’t want to mess it up!)
