Comfort food is one of those things that brings different foods to mind for different people. For me, a bowl of macaroni and cheese is the ultimate comfort food. Especially when I’m making my Horseradish Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese. It’s a little spicy, a whole lot creamy, cheesy and satisfying.

Sometimes comfort food is more on the sweet side.

If sweet is what I’m looking for, this Seven Layer Bars Recipe is always a quick fix. They’re easy to make, filled with chocolate and marshmallows just like classic s’mores.

If I have a little more time on my hands or company coming over, bread pudding is the recipe that pulls me in and wraps its warm arms around me.

In the cool winter and autumn months, my Maple Bread Pudding Recipe is what I’m making. Made with toasty waffles, bacon, pecans and maple syrup it’s sure to warm you up as a special dessert or even as decadent breakfast. Come on, there are waffles and bacon in there! Total breakfast material.

But once these warmer months roll around, comfort food often takes on a different meaning. This coconut banana bread pudding has on its flowy sundress and is headed for a warm, sandy beach with a pina colada in hand. Bread pudding with tropical flair!

Crusty bread soaks up coconut milk and eggs, creating a sweet custard that is filled with fresh bananas and coconut flakes. Once baked, the top gets golden brown and the coconut toasts, which adds a lovely nutty flavor to the mix.

The finishing touch is a drizzle of salted caramel, which makes this bread pudding fall firmly on the dessert side of things. Though this could fall in nicely as the decadent, sweet star of your weekend brunch table if you’re looking for something extra special. No matter when you choose to serve this dish, you’ll want to grab a spoon and dive right in to this coconut banana bread pudding.
