Gluten Free Mango Bread Pudding

Individual gluten free mango bread puddings, sweetened with honey, are the perfect brunch dish.

This post is part of a collaboration between My Gluten Free Miami and Schar. All opinions are my own.

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 with gluten free mango bread pudding

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!

    Bread pudding isn’t something that I have often, so I’ve never really thought of getting so creative with flavors. And it does work so well gluten free.

    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!

    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!
