When I first tried this I was a bit skeptical, I thought what is stale bread going to do for me. But then I saw the rum, coconut and pineapple in the sauce and I had to try it. I liked it hope you do too.

I strongly urge one and all to try this as a BREAKFAST casserole because it is perfect as a make-ahead for a busy weekend morning. Just what the doctor ordered, and much easier to eat a big piece early in the day, than as dessert later on. Yummy!

The carbs are really high on this and that's without the bread or pineapple-orange-banana juice even factored in. It sounds yummy but not for a diabetic.
