Bread Puddin' for Breakfast (and a Cookbook Winner!)

Quick post tonight. First, the winner of the Caribbean Vegan cookbook giveaway ... drumroll please ... is Jess of Midwest Vegan!! Jess' favorite "exotic" foods are Indian: " I love savory coconut rice with tofu jalfrezi (three pepper tofu), as well as palak tofu, and veg biryani." But she'll soon be cooking up some Caribbean fare to fill her faraway cravings. Congrats Jess!

I only have one food photo to share tonight, and it's not all that attractive. But it was damn tasty this morning with a cold glass of vanilla almond milk. I made my Chocolate Chip Coconut Bread Puddin' with Vanilla Sauce as a tester for my cookbook:

Bread puddin' is never really very sexy-lookin', but we all know that it tastes far, far better than it looks. Mine has melty chocolate chips, flaky coconut, and soft, sweet chunks of multi-grain bread. Admittedly, not the healthiest breakfast. But in this final stage of testing, I'm having to make more dessert than I can eat as actual dessert. So some of it becomes breakfast, and I'm okay with that.

I would have never thought of bread pudding for breakfast! I know I should know this, but when is your cookbook coming out? Do you have a title for it yet?

I've never had bread pudding before! This is the second time I've seen a photo of it today though, and I really need to try it.
