5 C.                        Day-Old Bread (Torn into 2-Inch Pieces)

1 14 oz. Can         Full-Fat Coconut Milk

2/3 C.                    Maple Syrup

2 tsp.                     Ground Cinnamon

1 tsp.                     Salt, Divided

1 1/4 C.                Unflavored Almond Milk, Chilled

1/3 C.                    Cornstarch

2 tsp.                     Vanilla Extract

1 C.                        Pecan Halves

1/4 C.                    Brown Sugar

1/4 C.                    Vegan Butter, Melted

Why use day-old bread? The aged bread is perfect for soaking up all the gooey goodness and it becomes fresh again after baking. However, a dish is only as good as its ingredients and not all breads are baked equal. Which one should you use for this yummy dish? We suggest a vegan sourdough, ciabatta, focaccia, or baguette. Now that we have that sorted. Let’s get to baking.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly oil a 2 ½ quart baking dish.
  2. Arrange the bread pieces in the baking dish.
  3. Whisk the coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, and ½ teaspoon of salt together into a medium saucepan.
  4. Place the pan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  5. While the coconut milk mixture heats up, stir the chilled almond milk and cornstarch together in a small bowl or liquid measuring cup. Stir until the cornstarch dissolves completely.
  6. Once the coconut milk mixture comes to a simmer, whisk in the cornstarch mixture.
  7. Bring the mixture back up to a simmer and allow it to cook, whisking frequently, until it thickens up to the consistency of pudding, about 1-2 minutes.
  8. Remove the pot from heat and stir in the vanilla. Then pour the mixture over the bread pieces.
  9. Stir the pecans, brown sugar, butter and the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt together in a small bowl. Then spread over the bread mixture.
  10.  Bake, uncovered, until bubbly and lightly browned on top, about 45 minutes.
  11.  Remove the pudding from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes and serve warm or allow it to cool and set completely before serving.
