I was cleaning out my inbox and found this bread pudding recipe that my cousin Ruth made. She omitted the coconut flakes and substituted more milk for the coconut milk, and only made half the sauce. But it was divine :) I found this blogger has it all typed up so I'll just link you here. New Orleans Style Bread Pudding
(yes I see the irony in linking a New Orleans recipe when the Detroit Lions lost to the Saints yesterday).
