CRUMBLE bread into large bowl. Add pineapple, shredded coconut, macadamia nuts and melted butter to bread; mix well. Combine evaporated milk, coconut milk, sugar, eggs, cinnamon and nutmeg in another large bowl. Add milk mixture to bread mixture. The batter should be moist. Pour into prepared dish.

We just finished a lesson on Costa Rica in our Homeschool and I was searching for the perfect recipe to celebrate. This went over great, and the rum sauce was the perfect complement, although the kids opted for additional crushed pineapple for their topping. I did halve the recipe,since there's only 4 of us, using 1 egg plus an egg yolk. Great recipe, that we'll be making again.
