Do you have any left-over slices of bread and you're tired of eating them in the normal way? If you are like me, I always find it a good change when these simple slices of bread are converted into a delicious Bread Pudding.
Bread pudding is another popular dessert in Trinidad and Tobago, as well a favourite. It is sometimes served with ice-cream, I love it with coconut ice-cream. But some people would eat it as it is. This dessert recipe hardly needs any help to ensure it tastes great.
This Pudding recipe is very easy. The bread used was a tasty whole grain bread. For this reason, this (bread) Pudding recipe came out tasting extra delicious and very much filling. It is always a welcome to enjoy a little old-fashioned bread pudding once in a while. So here is your free bread pudding recipe. I encourage you to try it. You will not be disappointed.
Here is Bread Pudding....
Bread Pudding Recipe
4 cups whole grain bread (cut small)
2 cups evaporated milk
3 tbsp. coconut oil
1 cup honey or brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla essence
1 cup raisins
2 tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. grated lime or lemon rind
1 pinch salt
Dice the whole grain bread slices.
Add the milk and vanilla essence to the bread and leave to soak for about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the oil to the soaked bread.
In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon and salt.
Add the sugar (or honey if you choose).
Add the raisins.
Beat the eggs. I used a hand blender to get the job done quickly.
Add the grated lime or lemon rind. Mix thoroughly.
Bake in a greased dish in a moderate oven for about 45 minutes until done.
The finished Bread Pudding.

Made this last night for my mum's church using this recipe and it came out PERFECT! I didn't have coconut oil so I just substituted some carnation milk for coconut milk. Thank you so much for all your recipes.
Now no more left over bread to throw away. Did not have coconut oil I used vegetable oil. Substittued the honey for cinnamon syrup. Came out superb.
Thank you RenTen 🙂
Hello Felix, the 4 cups of cubed bread would be equivalent to how many slices of bread to begin with please?
4 cups of cubed bread would be equivalent to about 5 slices of bread.
Thank you Felix.
Can i use Kiss sandwich bread?Or is it to light and thin?
You can use it, though it is always best to use wholewheat or whole grain breads. You might have to add 2 or 3 more slices to the recipe though.
Thank you Felix 🙂
One more question....if i don't have coconut oil available ,can i leave it out and still get the yummy results or is there a substitute?
You can always substitute with any other kind of oil or melted butter as well.
Great thanks 🙂

Sorry... but whole wheat bread is a relatively new thing. There can be nothing traditional about this. Would taste bizarre to anyone accustomed to the real thing.
Perhaps you know what is the real thing? Why not share your recipe.
