Krispy Kreme is my favorite chain donut shop. Paula Deen follows her friend, Bill Nicholson’s famous donut bread pudding. In this YouTube tutorial, Paula is joined with her best friend, Bubbles to make this classic dessert that I have never heard of. They are so funny together and I loved watching them cut up and having a good time. It reminds me of my friends and me when we cook or bake because Paula gets sidetracked. This isn’t a recipe for someone who is watching their diet because it’s going to be a heavy, sweet dessert. Also, this can be a breakfast treat if you’re feeling something extra sweet in the morning.
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 (9 oz) box raisins
- 2 beaten eggs
- 2 4.5-oz cans undrained fruit cocktail
- 1 14-oz can (not evaporated) sweetened condensed milk
- 2 dozen donuts
- 1 teaspoon (up to 2 teaspoons) cinnamon
- 1 stick butter
- 1 lb confectioner’s sugar
- to taste rum
First, cube donuts into a large bowl. In this recipe, Paula is using 2 dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts. Pour other ingredients on top of donuts and let soak for a few minutes. Mix all ingredients together until donuts have soaked up the liquid as much as possible.
Next, transfer the bread pudding in a pan and bake at 350 °F for about an hour until the center has jelled. Top with Butter Rum Sauce.
In conclusion, this Krispy Kreme bread pudding recipe is said to be a once in a lifetime recipe. Paula says this because it’s super sugary and high in calories. Honestly, a sugar shock. I’m not a big raisin person so I would leave it out. This recipe can be made in one big container/bowl because everything gets dumped and mixed. There should be no worries for a lot of dishes in the end.
