I found this recipe by accident right before Thanksgiving and decided to use my family as a test run. It ended up being the favorite dessert of the night, and my brother in law has said I can no longer come to the house if I don't bring it.LOL

    3 whole eggs

    13 1/2 oz cans unsweetened coconut milk

How to Make COCONUT CREAM (OR DREAM) BREAD PUDDING

Step-by-Step

  1. Lightly butter the bottom of a 12-inch flameproof baking dish. Arrange
    the bread cubes evenly in the dish. In a large bowl, whisk together the
    yolks, whole eggs, coconut milk, cream of coconut, salt, nutmeg, and
    mace. Stir in 1 1/2 cup of the coconut flakes. Pour the custard over
    the bread cubes, pressing the bread cubes gently to soak up the
    custard.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Sprinkle the top of the pudding with the remaining 1/2 cup coconut
    flakes. Cover the baking dish with foil, poking a few holes in the top
    to release the steam. Put the baking dish into a roasting pan on the
    oven rack. Pour hot water into the roasting pan to come halfway up the
    sides of the baking dish. Bake until the pudding is firm to the touch,
    about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for 15 minutes
    more. Remove the baking dish from the water bath and run it under the
    broiler, at least 4 inches from the heat, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes.
    Let the pudding cool completely
  4. Pineapple Simple Syrup

    2c sugar
    2c frozen pineapple juice (thawed)

    Cook until thickens
