Donut Bread Pudding

We chose to have donuts at our wedding reception instead of the traditional wedding cake. We purchased 9 dozen total (5 dozen regular glazed and 4 dozen chocolate glazed) and ended up with 1 dozen of each left over.
I wasnt sure what to do with so many, no longer fresh, donuts….. so I decided to [attempt] to make bread pudding with them.

The end result turned out amazing and delicious!
I made two batches, one with the chocolate and one with the regular glazed.
Aaron said that he liked the regular one better; but the chocolate was definitely my favorite.

The recipe is super easy and quick; I highly recommend it if you ever find yourself with several, day-old donuts. 

Donut Bread Pudding:
glazed donuts, day old (enough to cover the bottom of a 13 x 9 glass baking dish)
2 large eggs
2 egg yolks
1⁄2 cup sugar
1⁄2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
21⁄2 tsp. salt
1⁄2 tsp. cinnamon
1⁄4 tsp. nutmeg
3 cups whole milk

Cut donuts into bite-size pieces and arrange in a buttered 13 X 9 baking (glass) dish. 
Combine remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and pour over donuts. 
Cover and refrigerate for one hour. (I used a pyrex dish and its lid, worked wonderfully)

Place baking dish in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 70 minutes or until center springs back to touch.
Serve warm.

We kept the leftovers in the pyrex, in the refrigerator. Then reheated a small amount at a time in the oven (350 degrees for 10-12 minutes).

  1. I love unexpected foods and things at a wedding. It's refreshing to stray from tradition once in a while. This sounds so amazing! We're always left with day-old (sometimes, days old!)doughnuts.
