Bread is something that is always in our pantry. I have already mentioned a few posts ago how the kids only want bread sandwich. It’s a shame that I have never ever baked it at home. God, where do I go and hide?? Grr… it’s one of the recipes that I have to try very soon, so that I make bread at home, rather than having to buy them… InShaAllah, very soon. Sometimes, I am left with slices that are going to go stale, especially when the kids have a long weekend. That time, I love to utilise them into desserts. You can check out the Eggless Caramel Bread Pudding (in fact, among the top 10 most viewed recipes on the blog!), Bread Butter Pudding and Bread Halwa just for a few ideas. This is another one that I tried from a cut-out of mine. What attracted me was – of course, no marks for guessing! – the coconut milk! Secondly, there is no sugar, instead we use honey. What more can you make this healthy? This was actually a recipe for a vegan bread pudding, but since I didn’t have any agave nectar, I used honey and made it non-vegan. Highly recommended as a light warm dessert after dinner…
Bread Coconut Milk Pudding
- 8 slices bread cubed
- 1 large apple
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
- A dash of nutmeg powder
- 15 walnuts crushed
- 400 ml can coconut milk
- 2 tbsp agave nectar I used honey
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
- Peel and chop the apple into small pieces.
- Combine the bread, apple, powders and the walnuts in a baking bowl. Pour the coconut milk all over the mixture and allow it to rest for 10 minutes. Pour the agave nectar/ honey randomly over the bread mixture.
- Bake for 20 minutes or till the top gets browned. Serve warm, with more agave nectar/ honey if preferred!
