Hawaiian Bread Pudding with Coconut Caramel Sauce

hawaiian bread pudding

Sunday night was “College Night” at the bar across from my college campus. After 10pm, students were given 50% off, and you’d better believe that it was always packed. While my fellow 21-and-olders were in it for half priced mixed drinks, I was committed to something else: discounted bread pudding. What can I say? I have my priorities.

To this day, I love a good bread pudding.Think about it: carbs + pudding + sugar. Honestly, what’s not to love? This Hawaiian Bread Pudding is definitely a winning combination. I kept everything that’s sinfully delicious about bread pudding, and added in a little tropical twist. I’m preeeetty predictable like that. Plus – remember that Coconut Caramel Sauce I made last week? Um, yea. Make it. And then spoon pour it onto the Hawaiian Bread Pudding. Tropical party in yo’ mouth.

Bread pudding can be made with all different types of bread, but I highly recommend using Hawaiian sweet bread if you can find it. It totally makes this recipe. Looking for more ways to use the sweet bread? Try my Teriyaki Beef Sliders with Grilled Pineapple Coleslaw! It’s a killer summer recipe. And in case you’re counting like I am, summer starts in T minus 5 days. So enjoy the last week of Spring! And happy bread pudding eating.
