Bread Burfi | Easy Dessert Recipe | Bread Halwa

A decadent burfi full of the creamy wholesome goodness of coconut and brown bread.

Last Week when I was making a surprise dinner for my hero, I was running out of time to make a dessert (I know, its my poor planning), but I saved the day by making this delicious burfi.

The dessert recipe I am sharing here is full of the creamy wholesome goodness of fresh coconut and brown bread. As your teeth breakthrough the burfi, the coconut gives it a satisfying snap, and its a mouthful of bliss. To make this dessert even more healthier, I have used brown sugar but you can use either regular sugar or condensed milk according to your taste, with both sweeteners it tastes great.


  • 4 slices Brown Bread
  • 1.5 cup Milk
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup Coconut, grated/dessicated
  • 3 tablespoon Ghee
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cardamom powder
  • Cashews/Raisins

This is how you make this burfi!

  1. Blend the brown bread into crumbs. Soak it in milk and set aside for ten minutes.
  2. Heat ghee in a pan. Roast Coconut in low flame for three minutes.
  3. Add in sugar. Let it melt completely.
  4. Add soaked bread mixture. Stir and continue to cook till the milk gets evaporated.
  5. Add ghee and continue to stir.
  6. Add in cardamom powder, cashews and raisins. Mix well.
  7. Once if starts to leave from the edges of the pan, switch off.
  8. Transfer into a tray. Allow it to cool. Cut into desired shapes.
  9. Garnish with dry fruits of your choice.

  10. Special Note:

  • Place it in an airtight container and store it in refrigerator.
  • Consume within 2-3 days.
  • Condensed milk also can be used as a substitute for sugar.
