This Donut Bread Pudding is similar to classic bread pudding, but instead of bread, you use cut-up donuts. How yummy is that?

Sidenote: This kind of reminds me of that time I used leftover pancakes to make a delicious Blueberry Almond Pancake Pudding!

And because this a special treat, I just couldn’t top it with anything ordinary. That’s why I made espresso whipped cream for the top. A tasty complement to the donuts!

How Do you Make Donut Bread Pudding?

Start with two-dozen stale donuts.

I bought Krispy Kreme Original Glazed since they are my favorite. To make them “stale,” I cut them into bite-sized pieces; then I spread the pieces out on sheet trays and let them sit out overnight. By morning, the donuts were just the way I needed them.

Similar to classic bread pudding, the donut pieces soak in a custard made from eggs, milk, cream, and sugar. Next, all of that deliciousness gets baked for about an hour.

Recipe Notes

*It's best to use stale donuts for this recipe. If you have fresh donuts, cut them in pieces and dry them out in a single layer on two large baking sheets. Leave them uncovered overnight. They'll be ready to use in the morning. **If you notice that the bread pudding is getting too brown, cover the pan with aluminum foil.

    So, can you make this recipe with only 3 donuts? Because if I left a tray of donut parts out unattended I’d only have about 3 donuts worth of pieces left come morning! LOL! Looks delish Michael! We call bread pudding “Soggy bread dessert” it doesn’t sound as appetizing, but I’ll hide the pieces and give “Soggy donut dessert” a whirl! I’m sure the family will scarf it down!
