  • 3 cups stale bread cubes
  • 1/2 cup kulolo
  • 2 cups coconut-macadamia milk (substitute 2 cups of regular milk with 1/4 cup shredded coconut and 1/4 cup macadamia nuts)
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup diced mango


Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease an 8″ x 8″ baking dish and spread your bread cubes evenly over the bottom.

Step 2

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the eggs and add the kulolo, coconut-macadamia milk, butter, sugar, cinnamon, salt, allspice and vanilla. Stir to combine.

Step 3

Pour the mixture evenly over the bread cubes and let sit for 15 minutes so the bread can absorb the liquid.

Step 4

Sprinkle the diced pineapple and mango over the top of the bread pudding. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.

Step 5

Let the bread pudding cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. Drizzle with a bit of extra coconut-macadamia milk if desired!

There you have it—a classic bread pudding with a tropical twist. With its unique textures and Mediterranean-island flavors, this dish is sure to be a hit at your next gathering. For more Hawaiian culinary experiences, check out our recipes for poi-glazed pork ribs, loco moco and huli-huli chicken!
