Coat a 2-quart ceramic souffle dish (8—inch diameter) with the melted butter and reserve. Cut a piece of aluminum foil 16-inches square and lightly butter an 8-inch round in its center. Cut a piece of aluminum foil about 24 inches long. Fold in half lengthwise, then fold in half again two more times to create a strip about 24 inches in length and 2 inches wide to make a “cradle” and reserve. Place the bread cubes, mango and coconut in a large bowl. Place the eggs in a medium bowl. Whisk until smooth. Add evaporated milk, coconut milk, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. Whisk to combine. Pour over the bread cube mixture and stir gently to combine. Pour into prepared soufflé dish and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Cover with prepared sheet of foil, buttered side down, so that the foil allows for the top of the bread pudding to expand, but fits tightly around the sides of the soufflé dish. Set the dish in the center of the long strip of folded foil and bring up the sides to meet - twist together to form a “handle.” Place trivet/rack in the Cooking Pot and add 2 cups of cold water. Using the foil “cradle” to help lift the dish and carefully lower the dish into the pot and place on the trivet/rack. Cover and lock lid in place. Select High Pressure and set timer for 25 minutes. When audible beep sounds, use Natural Pressure Release to release pressure. When float valve drops, turn off. Remove lid carefully, tilting away from you to allow steam to disperse. Remove bread pudding from the cooking pot using the foil strips to lift up. Place on a cooling rack. Remove foil. Let stand 10 minutes before serving, or cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate. Serve with softly whipped cream if desired.
