Poudine Dipain/Bread Pudding

Today I’m sharing another Mauritian recipe, Bread Pudding A.K.A Poudine Dipain. Last week, Sché who is a Franco-Mauritian blogger shared her mother’s bread pudding recipe on her blog, la kitschenette. The picture drew my attention immediately as it looked so tempting. I craved my mom’s very own bread pudding from that moment!

Bread Pudding is something very Mauritian that one can enjoy for breakfast or tea. It’s also a good (and yummy) way to use leftover bread My favourite part is the sweet caramel that my mom prepares, especially if she’s making that orange flavored pudding. Somehow, I never realised that I didn’t know how to prepare bread pudding till the day I read Sché’s blog post…

Anyways, I asked my mom to teach me how she makes that orange flavoured bread pudding and it turned out to be very easy.


For the Caramel:

  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar

  • Juice from 1 Orange.

For the Pudding:

  • 8 leftover bread loaves (Sliced)

  • 1 Cup of Milk

  • 4 Tablespoons of sugar (or more depending on your taste)

  • 1 Cup grated coconut

  • 2 tablespoons cornflour or custard powder

  • 4 Tablespoons Butter

  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Essence

  • 1 Tablespoon grated Orange Rind
