This is a traditional Belizean recipe for a classic baked dessert made with coconut milk, evaporated milk and rum. It's very good, I hope you give it a try.

How to Make Belizean Bread Pudding


  1. Break up the bread into a large bowl. Add the sugar, raisins, butter, cinnamon, and mix gently with a large spoon.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together the evaporated milk, coconut milk, and water; cook until hot.
  3. Add creamy mixture to the bowl with bread pieces, and set aside until bread is soggy. Then add the alcohol (or vanilla extract) and mix well.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C,.
  5. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Pour bread pudding into greased pan, and bake 90 minutes, or until the bread pudding is crunchy. Let cool completely.
  6. Turn out and place crunchy side up. It's delicious as is, or even better topped with ice cream, custard, or whipped cream.
