Bread Pudding made with stale Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
This recipe is something new I decided to try this weekend. My daughter came home from college and brought a stale box of Krispy Kreme regular glazed doughnuts. If you have never eaten them hot, you don't know what you are missing. I began to experiment and came up with what I feel is a great recipe for bread pudding. There is nothing like the flavor and texture that come together when you use Krispy Kreme's flour doughnuts.
Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding Ingredients:
- 1 dozen stale Krispy Kreme regular glazed donuts
- 2-1/2 cups of whole milk
- 4 large eggs beaten
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 quart baking dish greased with butter or canola oil
Directions to make the bread pudding:
First, take the 2 quart baking dish and grease the sides. Take the dozen donuts and break them up into about 5 pieces so they will fit neatly in the baking dish. Gently press them in the dish. Take 1 cup of milk and pour over them to begin absorbing the moisture and getting soft again. Take the remaining 1-1/2 cups of milk in a mixing bowl. Add beaten eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Whisk until all ingredients are mixed well. Pour over the soaking donuts. You may take your fingers and mash down the donuts into the baking dish until they are covered with milk and egg solution.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grab a baking pan with edges and set the baking dish in it. Pour some tap water in the bottom of the baking dish but be careful not to over flow the water. This procedure keeps the sides of the baking dish from sticking while cooking. Bake for at least 1 hour. Stick a butter knife into the bread pudding and remove to see if any moisture or milk mixture wets the knife. If the knife is dry, it's done. If it comes out covered with milky mixture, cook another 10 minutes or so. The purpose is for this recipe to become like a pudding, not a soup.
There is no need to add whisky sauce, rum sauce or raisins to this recipe. This recipe is for those who really love Krispy Kreme doughnuts but don't like them stale.
