Step-by-step "Hawaiian Bread" Pudding...

Bread pudding out of “Hawaiian Bread” one of the best things I have ever made, not to mention easy! If you love Hawaiian bread, you will definitely love this dessert. And bonus, there is Hawaiian bread and pineapple in it so it also qualifies as breakfast!


  • 1 loaf of Hawaiian bread cut into bite sized cubes (see Hawaiian bread recipe below, especially for you...)
  • 2 cups pineapple cut into bite sized chunks
  • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 ¼ cups white chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  1. Cut the bread and pineapple into bite sized cubes and add to the  9×13 pan. In a saucepan heat the cream over medium heat. 
  2. Meanwhile put the chocolate chips into a medium sized bowl. 
  3. Once the heavy cream begins to simmer remove it from the heat and pour over the white chocolate chips. 
  4. Whisk the white chocolate and the heavy cream until the chocolate is melted. Add the sugar, milk, eggs, egg yolks and vanilla and whisk. Pour the mixture over the bread and pineapple. Sprinkle with the coconut. 
  5. Allow the bread pudding to sit for 1 hour and then bake for 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven. If it is getting too brown cover the bread pudding with foil.
