I have a client saying she heard Belize was famous for bread pudding. I have never seen it on any menu or eaten it anywhere in the country (but I am not much on desserts/sweets). Anyone????

For what it's worth. Had it a couple of times at Victoria House in years past(maybe previous chef). Not my favorite anyway so I can't remember to much about it. TIMO

That was the most disappointing part of my last trip. No bread pudding. On previous trips, kids would be selling bread pudding on the beach and in the bars. Delicious. Beliken and bread pudding, great combo. I believe all of it was made in homes and sold to supplement income. If the kids would give up the beads and start selling the BP, they would make alot more money(IMHO).

Victoria House used to be owned by some New Orleanians, and New Orleans is famous for its bread pudding, so that is probably why it used to be on the menu there. I've had it a time or two elsewhere in Belize, but I don't think bread pudding is much of a favorite in Belize.

I'd say it's traditionally popular dish, probably introduced by the Brits or someone with a bakery..

Looks like Elvi serves bread pudding:
Also Tropica:
And Blue Water Grill, among many others. A very popular local desert

Oh yeh, bread pudding was a specialty when senor lobster was going. It was made special a few times a week only and there was only one person who made it at that restaurant, belizian mainlander forgot her name. Its like a cinnamon pie, cake thing, very rich. A totally different flavor and texture. Kinda reminded me of a really really thick crepe with cinnamon swirled in it.

BREAD PUDDING, pass some over this way.

My favorite in San Pedro, from La Popular Bakery and Rubies.
