Mango Love

I love all things mango. They are one of my favorite fruits. I love them in both sweet and savory dishes. Lucky for me, mangoes are plentiful in South Florida. During the summer I get them by the bucket full from my Dad, then cut and freeze them for use during the year.

Generally, I can often find fresh mangoes in the store as well, but nothing beats a mango just of the tree!

I love incorporating them into dishes, so when I started to make this bread pudding,  I thought why not add a bit of South Florida flavor!

I love individual desserts. They are great for helping with portion control and look so pretty.

Perfect for serving at a brunch, especially since this recipe is so easy to make! I even used honey instead of white sugar to sweeten it. It gives it that perfect balance.

Plus, honey pairs beautifully with mangos.

Schar Ciabatta Bread

I used Schar Ciabatta bread to create this gluten free mango bread pudding. Schar is already one of my favorite bread brands, and the ciabatta is amazing. I love using it for sandwiches and garlic bread.

It was perfect for this bread pudding. I cut each piece up and then toasted it in the oven for about 5 minutes to pull any moisture out of it before tossing it with the egg/milk mixture. Alternatively, you could leave it sitting out a long time, but I felt like the over method was much faster.

Gluten free bread can have a tendency to be soggy, but the Schar Ciabatta held up beautifully.

Quick and Easy

This recipe is really simple to make. Sometimes bread pudding is served with a caramel-like sauce. I chose not to make a sauce to go on top, but if you prefer a sauce, it isn’t hard to make one! You could use a recipe like the one from Mi Gluten Free Gal in her Gluten Free Donut Bread Pudding or simply use the leftover sauce from cooking down the mangoes and add a bit more honey and butter. Totally up to you.

I took the easy path and added some ice cream!

This gluten free mango bread pudding is going to be perfect for Spring and Summer brunches (or winter if you’re feeling a little longing for the tropics!).  It has the perfect sweet balance.

I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Have you ever tried a bread pudding with fruit in it before? Let me know in the comments.

Happy Gluten Free Eating!

  1. Mangos in bread pudding is a big surprise, certainly not your traditional pudding. All of your suggestions for topping are great…but I’m thinking some whipped coconut cream would carry on the tropical vibe!

  2. I have never had bread pudding with fruit (other than raisins) in it! This sounds great and would be a great addition to our family table since there are quite a few around it with tolerance issues. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I have celiac and am completely gluten free. This recipe looks amazing! All of your bright and beautiful pictures make me want to reach right into the screen and scoop up a delicious bite!
