"This fruity twist on an old-fashioned favorite is plain delicious," confirms Katie Sloan of Charlotte, North Carolina. "Who says you can't make a custard dessert for just two?"


  • 1 cup cubed French bread (1/2-inch cubes)
  • 1/2 small firm banana, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 tablespoon sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place half of the bread cubes in a 2-cup baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine the banana, pineapple, coconut and lemon juice; spoon over bread cubes. Top with remaining bread cubes.
  2. In a bowl, beat the egg and brown sugar. Add the cream and vanilla; mix well. Pour over bread and press down slightly. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°.
