Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding


For the record, I've never been a bread pudding kind of gal, or a breakfast casserole kind of gal. Or a stuffing kind of gal. It's the soggy bread in all of the above that gets to me. Bread should NOT be soggy!!

This is soggy, bread pudding just has to be that way! But with a box or 2 of krispy kreme donuts, you won't care because you'll love how sweet it is.

  • Donuts
  • eggs
  • butter
  • fruit cocktail
  • cinnamon
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • vanilla
Cut your donuts up into bite size pieces. Try not to eat too many while you cut. I know it's hard to contain yourself.

Whisk together your eggs, condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon

It'll probably smell really good, but please don't taste it.

Drizzle all of it over your donuts and stir it good.

Let it sit for a bit and soak everything up.

Add your fruit cocktail, stir again, and let it sit, soaking up all the juices.

I made a half batch, because Captain Jax ate the other box of donuts.

After it cooks, it's nice and brown. I loved the crispy pieces on the top!

I ate it warm, gave my little brother the left overs and he ate it cold. Said it was still really good cold. So it's a versatile dish as well!

A beautiful recipe card I received in a swap on SplitCoastStampers. (stay tuned! Next week I have a recipe book giveaway with hand-crafted recipe cards like this one!)

She even had glazes you could put over the top! I'll include those for you, don't worry :)

Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding
  • 2 dozen Krispy Kreme Donuts
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 stick melted butter
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 can (15oz) fruit cocktail
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg (optional)
Preheat oven to 350degs. Tear the donuts into little chunks and set aside in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Add milk and beat together. Add vanilla, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well. Pour egg mixture into doughnut chunks and stir. Add fruit cocktail, with juice. Add the pecans, and stir well. Let mixture sit long enough for the doughnuts to soak up as much liquid as possible. Pour into a 9x13 glass pan and bake for 30-40 minutes. Serve with your choice of glaze.

Butter Rum Sauce
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 lb powdered sugar
  • rum, to taste
Melt butter and slowly stir in powdered sugar. Add rum and heat until bubbly. Pour over top of the pudding.

Buttermilk Glaze
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine first 5 ingredients in saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir in vanilla. Pour over the top of the pudding.


  1. Sounds like the perfect indulgence! I would have a hard time not eating the donuts before I made it. This sounds like it could be a Paula recipe too. I think I've seen her do a version of this before. Delicious:)

  2. Love your blog and step by step recipes ( so fun) . this dish does look TOO sweet :) I am following you now.

  3. Just the title is deadly. That looks so sinful.
