Belizean Bread Pudding is a traditional Belizean recipe for a classic baked dessert made with coconut milk, evaporated milk and rum. I found this recipe on the BelizeAttractions website, and I thought it was worth a try.

Made for ZWT7 this is a very nice bread pudding with the flavor of coconut added. I used whole wheat bread as I almost never have white bread in the house. While any of the suggested toppings would be great I didn't think I needed the added calories and passed on them. Even though you really can't tell be my photo this has a moist creamy texture that, in it's self, is reminiscent of custard. I went heavier on the raisins because DH really likes them. Would you believe that we had it warm for lunch because it's a chill dark day with a cold hard wind blowing and it really hit the spot. :D

  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together the evaporated milk, coconut milk, and water; cook until hot.
