Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Toss bread and mango in the prepared pan. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Add milk, butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, vanilla and salt; whisk to combine. Pour the custard over the bread mixture. Sprinkle with coconut. Coat a piece of foil with cooking spray and cover the pan, coated-side down. Place another 9-by-13-inch baking dish on top as a weight. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or up to 1 day.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the top baking dish, leaving the foil in place. Let stand at room temperature while the oven preheats.

  • Bake the casserole, covered, for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes more. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.


To make ahead: Refrigerate unbaked casserole for up to 1 day.
