As Doug Heffernan would say, "It do not get better than this!" I was looking for a way to use up some leftover coconut milk I had in the fridge left over from a Pina Colada punch I made (I really should submit that recipe), and was really excited when I found this, since I love both bread pudding and coconut. Since it's just the hubs and me, I cut the recipe in half and left out the extra egg yolk, since it would have been problematic to use half of one. I also didn't have fresh coconut, but I DID have some Trader Joe's roasted coconut chips, so I used those in the same proportion as the fresh, and it turned out very well! It was a little sweet, and I used unsweetened coconut milk, so I will probably cut down on the sugar next time. I also think it's important to not leave out the step of greasing the pan with butter and confectioners' sugar and toasting the coconut on top during the last of the cooking was a very nice touch and shouldn't be omitted. I will be serving it to company tomorrow and can't wait for them to love it!
