Iola Egle • Bella Vista, Ark.
1 large box Sugar Free White Chocolate Instant Pudding
Milk, according to box direction
Raw Sugar, to cover
Mix pudding according to package directions and put into 4 small 1/2-inch high custard dishes. After pudding is thoroughly chilled in refrigerator, place dishes in cake pans and surround with ice water. Raw sugar is then sprinkled over the whole top of each pudding dessert. The cake pans can then be placed in the oven under broil until the sugar melts, watch carefully. Take the pans out of the oven when sugar is bubbly around the edges and has melted over the pudding. Chill puddings again or serve immediately.

Hawaiian Bread Pudding
Marlene Maurer • Lakewood, Colo.
3 Eggs, beaten
1/4 c. White Sugar
4 c. Milk, 2% or Whole
6 Tbsp. Coconut Milk
8 c. Diced White Bread, not fresh
1/2 c. Macademia Nuts, toasted and chopped
1/2 c. Coconut Flakes, toasted if you like
Thoroughly mix diced bread, nuts and coconut flakes. Place bread mixture in a 9-by-12-inch casserole lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Combine eggs, sugar, milk and coconut milk. Slowly pour the liquid over the bread mixture, wetting the entire surface. Spray a very light spray of cooking spray over the mixture to keep the surface of the bread from drying too fast. Bake in a preheated oven at 325 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes, until nicely browned. Remove and drizzle coconut syrup over the top. Let it rest for 1 hour or more, uncovered, before serving. * A half cup of finely diced dried mango, dried apricots or white or black raisins added to the bread mixture might add a nice flavor to this recipe, even allowing for a reduction of the sugar to perhaps a half cup.
