Coconut Almond Bread Pudding


Why not try some "comfort food" this weekend? Make our Coconut Almond Bread Pudding, just like Grandma used to bake.

Skill: Beginning Prep Time: 10 Bake Time: 50-60 Servings: 6



Ingredients:

1 pan Rhodes™ Warm-N-Serv Buttery Dinner Rolls or Sticky Buns
1/2 cup coconut, divided
1/2 cup chopped almonds, divided
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 pint whipping cream or 2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
caramel topping, if desired


Directions:

Allow rolls to thaw enough that you can cut each one into 8 equal pieces to make 1-inch cubes. Place half of the roll cubes in the bottom of a sprayed 9x9-inch baking pan. Sprinkle with half of the coconut and half of the almonds. Repeat with remaining roll cubes, coconut and almonds. If any of the sticky glaze remains in the pan, scrap it out and place on top of roll cubes. In a bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, except the caramel topping, and mix well. Pour mixture evenly over roll cubes. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour. Remove cover and bake at 350°F 50-60 minutes (cover with foil last 15 minutes of baking to prevent over browning).
Serve warm, drizzled with caramel topping, if desired.
