coconut bread + butter pudding


We hadn't had this dessert in forever, so when the Mr found me taking out whisks and bowls and asked what I was concocting, and I said it was coconut b&b pudding, he supported me cheerfully with

noooooooooooo!!!!!!

What can I say, he's a traditional sorta guy, and okay with coconut but not a big fan like me. But this version is only a hint of coconutty, and after a bite he was making those mmmmm noises that every dessert-maker works for.
If you do want it really coconutty, use coconut milk in place of the ordinary milk.



This isn't real baking so you can play with the amounts. And let me tell you, a 11/2 litre dish doesn't go far!

Gooey at the bottom, a hint of crunchy at the top. Bliss.



read: the tutorial for my new Scrivener {hat tip mel}. & untranslatable words {via dawn}
taste: tuna + mayo toasted sandwich
see: The House of Mirth. Other than the leads (shock), stilted, affected, superficial. read the book
hear: Call Your Girlfriend, Erato
think: for me, Autumn (Fall) is like arriving home
feel: wiped out. needing to recall my joy pockets

  4. pudding looks amazing! As someone who doesn't cope well with dairy foods, (yes - lactose intolerant so shouldn't be having all that cheese hehe), this is inspiring me to consider alternatives. Coconut is a great idea, because it really is quite subtle.

    Scrivener - I am incredibly intrigued and and drawn to it, and at the same time also repelled by that program...is it easy to use? Looking at it makes my brain hurt. It looks very...busy. And yet...

  8. mel, use half-n-half (single cream UK) in place of coconut cream if they don't like coconut at all.

    Antoinette, yes, using coconut cream and milk, or a milk alternative, and a margarine, would be a great dairy-free version.

    As for Scrivener, yes, like having to learn Photoshop, but quite a lot easier. More intuitive, and has similarities to the real world (pinboard, word processors).
    Worth it for writing - essays, books, research.

    My brain is taking days to read through it though. lol no rush :)

  9. Oh my goodness, I didn't even know such a dessert existed. I love coconut so this sounds amaaaazing!

  10. My husband and I sort of echo you and your husband when it comes to the coconut issue -- there is never too much for me, and there is never too little for him. This recipe might be great for us :)

  11. Oh my YUM! This looks so good! I love coconut, and if no one else in the house agreed, I would happily eat the whole thing myself. :)

    Definitely putting this in the recipe box!

  13. Thankyou so much for your comment on my blog, without which i wouldn't have found yours. I can see it's going to be a regular of mine. All your posts are beautiful, this one made me especially hungry, it's so cold where I am and this would be perfect to warm me right up. I'm now following you, would be lovely if you could follow back.
    ps: I just received 'Women who run with the wolves' in my post today, have already started reading it and am inspired and moved beyond belief. I noticed it was in your favourites xx

  14. I don't know the Mr but I don't think he should have any dessert power in your home ;-)

    Thanks for the film tip ... so, I'm not watching that one. I still haven't read the book but it has been on my list since sometime last century! Maybe time to do something about that.

    Have a beautiful weekend ;-)

  21. Have to remember this one: I'm always scrounging around at home for a simple dessert to make at nights - this one looks like it will fit the bill!
    And Scrivener is awesome.

  22. Oh, bread and butter pudding... My grandmother used to do it, so many memories! Never thought of doing it with coconut milk, I'm mouth watering.

  23. Bread pudding is one of my favorite desserts!!! It's so satisfying - dense and gooey and custardy. Yuuuuuum.
