"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." — EMERALDCITYJEWEL

I wasn't going to review this recipe because I didn't follow it as the author intended, but it turned out so well I wanted to give it a 5 star review. I was searching for something I could do with a whole batch of cookies that turned out too cake like and were just sitting in a Tupperware. I found this recipe, and replaced the doughnuts with my cookies and it turned out great! It tastes just like "Budin" which is a dessert made in Peru. So try this recipe with old cake, cookies, muffins... I'm sure it will work!
I liked this recipe. Definitely would not reccomend the addition of sugar if using a glazed doughnut! A nice crust on the top. I skipped the orange zest (I just am tired of it), so maybe it could have been even better. I just prefer the traditional bread pudding. Very creative.
Ok so I had some left over raised doughnuts and decided to try this. I didn't have any evaporated milk so i used 1 160z can of thi coconut milk and the rest half and half. It came out beautiful. Has a taste of douhgnuts but a bit like bread pudding also. As others have said this is not the usual bread pudding but then this is not hte usual recipe for bread pudding. I would make it again, maybe trying different kinds of douhgnuts and rolls. A fun recipe to play with.
I made this with some leftover Krisy Kreme's and it was delicious! Bonus points for creativity on this one.
This is really good not a typical bread pudding but definatly a great way to use up doughnuts. I followed the recipe but I didnt cook it in a water bath and it came out great. Dont be afraid to try this you will be surprised.
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.
Donut lovers of the world rejoice, because now we can enjoy our donuts twice! I used 5 large glazed donuts, chocolate, maple and plain, a 9 oz bottle of starbuck's raspberry mocha with a little extra 2 percent milk in place of the evaporated milk, and lemon instead of orange zest (added after all was combined). Used heart shaped silicone cupcake pan, got six filled to the top with a cup and a half extra, so I greased up my favorite coffee mug and poured in the extra. Topped each cup cake with about 1 tbsp semi-sweet choc and baked off for about 50 minutes (heart shaped cupcakes) and 60ish minutes for the mug. DELECTABLE! Will freeze up so I can savor this great use-it-up pudding.
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 which I did not have and I used Craisins instead of raisins. I combined it all before I left for work and baked it when I got home. This really would have been great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!! Thanks for sharing!
