For the bread:
Butter - Salted butter is what I use for this bread pudding recipe. If you only have unsalted butter make sure to add a pinch of salt.
Almond flour - Almond flour is a keto-friendly flour. It adds a bit of nutty flavor without being overpowering.
Coconut flour - Coconut flour is delicious and gives a slight hint of sweetness to this dish.
Eggs - These are the binding agent for the other ingredients.
Coconut milk - Coconut milk is perfect for baking because it's a great flavor enhancer.
Baking powder - A tad bit helps to give the bread some fluff.
For the custard:
Eggs - Eggs are the binding agent that helps also give that custard texture.
Coconut milk - Adding this type of milk provides richness and a hint of coconut.
Sweetener - My go-to sweetener is my Joy Filled Eats Natural Sweetener.
Heavy cream - This adds a bit of thickness to the texture.
For the topping:
Frozen mixed berries - A mixture of berries like strawberries, raspberries, or even some frozen cherries would be great.

Why is my sugar-free bread pudding dry?
If the bread pudding is dry, make sure that you're measuring out your egg mixture correctly. If you need to add in a tad bit more liquid, you can do so but be careful to not add too much.
Also, make sure that you're not overbaking as this will cause it to dry out as well.
