A Sweet Recipe from Southern Dessert Heaven

What makes Southern desserts so great? We asked Heidi Trull of Grits & Groceries in Belton, S.C. for her answer because, when we recently tried her coconut bread pudding, we knew we’d died and gone to Southern Dessert Heaven.

“To me,” Heidi said, “there is more depth in the flavor of the fruit and the nuts. You don’t have to have 5 and a half pounds of frosting on it for it to be great.” Heidi and her husband and partner Joe tweak and change their desserts daily based on the freshest local ingredients and incorporate them into their southern favorites — whether it’s bread pudding with peaches or a real old-fashioned banana pudding made with egg custard.

But here we present to you her sweet coconut bread pudding (our personal favorite). Trust us, it will be yours too!
