Pina Colada Bread Pudding

Pina Colada Bread Pudding

If you like pina coladas, and have leftover bread...add eggs, milk, sugar, and some more stuff...bake it up and you're fed

From the Delicious Disney Desserts cookbook my dad got me for Christmas (thanks Dad!)


-10 slices bread cubed and put in the broiler on a sheet until golden brown (or, in my case, one extraordinarily stale baguette)
- 1/2 c fresh pinapple finely chopped (I subbed most of a can of chunk pineapple drained)
-2 tbsp melted butter
-2 c milk
-6 beaten eggs
1/2 c heavy cream (I used buttermilk for both dairy items because it's the only dairy I keep in the house)
-1 c sugar (I used brown because I like it better)
-4 tbsp coconut milk (be sure to shake the can before you open it, I forgot)
-2 tbsp rum

-preheat the oven to 350
-toast the bread in the boiler and toss in a bowl with the pineapple
pour into a greased pan and drizzle the melted butter over it
-toss the eggs into a mixer
-heat up the milk (don't boil) add the milk, sugar, cream, coconut milk and rum to the eggs to make a custard.
-Pour the custard over the bread. You may need to stir to get it all covered
-Bake in an oven at 350 for 35-40 min when it springs back when you push down in the middle

The cookbook has a recipe for vanilla rum sauce, but I just used ice cream

Rum Sauce
Combine 2 egg yolks, 2tsp cornstarch, 2 tbsp milk, 1 tsbsp sugar in a mixing bowl til smooth
combine 1 c milk, 1 tbsp sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract in a sauce pan and boil
whisk egg yolk mixture into boiling milk (stir quickly)
Immediately pour into a bowl that is nestled inside of a larger bowl filled with ice water so it doesn't curdle. Add 1 tbsp coconut rum and whisk thoroughly
