  • 1/2 Tbl. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Tbl. Grated Ginger
  • 2/3 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 3 Tbl. Raisins
  • 4 Tbl. Unsweetened Coconut
  • Pinch of Salt

Lime and Orange Syrup

  • Zest of One Lime

  • 1/2 Cup Orange Juice
  • 2 Tbl. Grated Ginger
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 1 Tsp. Cornstarch


  • Lime Slices (Optional)
  • Fresh Passionfruit (Optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Start by cleaning the breadfruit. Slice in half and remove the centre core and scoop out the white flesh. This will be quick sticky and you should end up with about 1 1/2 cups of breadfruit. Make sure to remove the small seeds
  • Combine all the dry ingredients into one bowl and all the liquid ingredients, including the breadfruit, into another
  • Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet until fully mixed
  • Place the mixture into a greased baking dish and bake for about 50-60 minutes or until bread is set and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean
  • While the bread is cooking make the Lime and Orange Syrup. Add all the ingredients into a small pot and cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Taste and adjust the seasoning while you are cooking
  • Once the bread is cooked, pour over the lime syrup and garnish with fresh lime wedges and fresh passion fruit if using
  • Enjoy!
