My modification of a recipe from http://southernfood.about.com/od/dessertsaucerecipes/r/bl80503c.htm
- 2 cups milk
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 slices homemade sourdough bread, cubed
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/3 cup coconut
Heat milk 3.5 minutes in microwave until hot, but not boiling. In a bowl, combine eggs, sugar, and salt; stir well. Gradually add about 1/4 of the hot milk to the egg mixture and stir in. Add remaining milk, stirring constantly. Stir in vanilla.
Place bread cubes in 2 quart baking dish sprayed with PAM. Mix coconut with bread. Pour the milk mixture over bread. Sprinkle cinnamon over pudding mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 300° for about 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm with vanilla sauce or other dessert sauce, if desired. Serves 6.
