Today I have a real treat for you. I made this white chocolate strawberry bread pudding for my 45th birthday on Wednesday. The best part is that it’s made with all paleo ingredients.
Remember, I don’t create many dessert recipes. These are only to be enjoyed once in awhile, as a treat. This recipe has a lot of sugar in it. Even though it’s coconut sugar and honey, it’s still sugar. That being said, enjoy.
Make strawberry filling first by combining sugar and sliced strawberries in bowl. Press sugar into strawberries. Place in fridge for at least 20 minutes.
In large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs and egg yolks. Set aside.
In large saucepan, combine all coconut milk and sugar.
Bring mixture to a low simmer and add white chocolate. Whisk until chocolate is melted.
Remove pan from heat and quickly stir in whisked eggs. Continue stirring to keep eggs from scrambling.
In a 9”X13” baking dish, place bread slices in one layer. Top with strawberry filling. Cover with another layer of bread slices.
Pour half of coconut milk mixture over bread slices. Gently press bread slices to ensure mixture is absorbed by bread.
When most of mixture has been absorbed, pour remaining mixture over bread. Gently press.
Cover dish with parchment paper, then foil.
Let soak for 5 hours in fridge.
After 5 hours, remove baking dish from fridge and set aside while oven preheats.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Bake covered for 1 hour on middle rack.
Remove foil. Bake for another 45 minutes or until top is golden brown.
Create sauce to pour on top of each serving by combining melted white chocolate and full fat coconut milk in a double boiler.
Serve individual portions with sauce ladled on top. You can also garnish with a strawberry and whipped cream made with a can of full fat coconut milk, 5 or 6 drops liquid stevia, and 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.
Preparation time: Forever! It actually takes about 8 hours, start to finish.
** Note: I’ve provided a link for the recipe I used to make my white chocolate. If you choose to use this recipe, leave out the orange zest and cranberries. Follow the same instructions without those two ingredients.**
