Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

Over a year go I discovered Paula Deen had a bread pudding recipe using Krispy Kreme doughnuts and I was mesmerized. The idea has stuck with me and last weekend when my brother had a Krispy Kreme fundraiser for 4-H... we bought an extra dozen to give this recipe a try.

I made the bread pudding a little different though - here is the link for Paula Deen's and here is my version :)

Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

  • 1 dozen Krispy Kreme Doughnuts ( I did not have a full dozen, just 10... I have no clue where the other 1 went! ha ha)
  • 1 small can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs

Butter Rum Icing

  • Rum or rum flavoring, to taste
  • 1/4 butter or margarine
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  1. Cube doughnuts. See how I have the doughnuts in my baking dish already thinking I could save washing an extra bowl? Um, don't do that. It gets messy later trust me. Put them in a large bowl. You may think you have too much - the cubes become heavier and frankly squishier in the next step and will fit better later!

  2. Pour sweetened condensed milk over doughnuts and toss lightly to evenly coat the chunks. In a small bowl whisk eggs, cinnamon and salt; pour over doughnut chunks. Stir until evenly distributed and set aside. {This is when I brought out a bowl, my baking dish was too full to stir. Once they were coated I just pour them back into the dish. } Let set for 10-15 minutes to absorb as much moisture as possible.

  3. Bake in an oven safe dish at 350 degrees for approx. 30-40 minutes; until slightly crisp on top. You want the bread pudding to be moist, but no raw egg :(

While baking make icing:

  1. In a microwave safe bowl melt butter. Add rum {I used about a shot of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum in the icing.... and a shot for myself} and stir well. Slowly whisk in powdered sugar working out lumps. Pour over hot bread pudding. Serve immediately.

This was rich. Richie rich. Indulgent. So sweet I thought "This needs cool whip to cut the sweetness!" Don't worry I didn't... but DH had a big glass of milk to go along and I have to admit that sounded pretty good {I don't drink milk. Just don't like it.} I would definitely make this again.

{Note: Paula Deen's recipe called for 2 dozen donuts, raisins and a can of fruit cocktail. I am anti-fruit-bread-pudding-purist... and using 10 donuts made it soooo moist.}

Head over the Foodie Friday and see what other wonderful recipes are available!

This is truly a rich recipe. Krispy Kremes are delish. I would imagine this is a decadent dessert...I'd have to have a big cold glass of milk, like your hubby.

Come for a visit I'd enjoy the company.

Sweet wishes,
