5 stars from 1 rating of The Best Ever Coconut Bread Pudding

Yummy, warm, gooey, creamy bread pudding. This dish has been a favorite in households all over the world for all of time.

Bread pudding is a dish with a very old history and very old roots. It was originally created as a good use for stale bread. People from cultures throughout history have been wondering what to do with their stale bread, so they invented dishes, both savory and sweet, like this bread pudding, that utilized it.

Today, bread pudding is still made, but its current forms tend to be far more luxurious than their humble origins. Modern bread puddings often utilize fresh, gourmet breads, such as brioche, and include expensive ingredients, such as vanilla beans, bourbon, gruyere cheese or pecans.

Some of the newest additions to the world of bread pudding are nuts, chocolate and coconut. What's truly great is that you can make this dish one that is truly unique to your family by adding your own interesting ingredients.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! I know I do!
