Doughnut Bread Pudding

Rated as 4.39 out of 5 Stars

"Don't pass up those day-old doughnuts in the grocery store. They make great bread pudding! Just about any kind of raised yeast doughnuts work except for jelly. Apple fritters are even good. I sometimes use a combination of cinnamon, glazed, sugared doughnuts and apple fritters for an interesting combination. You don't have to add any extra fat and very little (if any) extra sugar depending on taste."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a small glass baking dish.
  2. Tear the donuts into bite-size pieces. Combine donut pieces and raisins in the prepared baking dish. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to blend together the eggs, evaporated milk, sugar, vanilla extract and almond extract. Mix in the cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour the milk mixture over the donuts in the dish, and press down lightly to help absorption. Let stand for 15 minutes, or cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Place the baking dish inside a larger baking dish, and fill the outer dish with enough water to go about halfway up the sides. A dishcloth may also be placed under the bread dish, to prevent drying.
  4. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm.


  • Note
  • This recipe can easily be doubled, but be sure to use a larger baking dish. Your baking time may increase by about 15 minutes too.

This was actually pretty good. I don't care much for the "soggy" bread in bread pudding, but I didn't mind the donuts for some reason. I used plain cake donuts, eliminated the almond extract w...

Try dried cranberries instead of raisins for a nice holiday brunch dish; looks very festive. Next time I make this, I'll try chocolate chips.
