I grew up eating bread pudding that I never liked. It always had way too much bread and never enough custard in my opinion. My parents way of not wasting stale bread. YUK! This recipe doesn't use stale bread, but rather stale criossants. It is a nice custardy bread pudding with pineapple, coconut, & rum.
** This is a variation of my apple bread pudding recipe I have already posted here. It came from an idea I had when chatting in the comments to that recipe. Enjoy!
