Bread Pudding:

  • 16 stale plain cake donuts cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter melted
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 4 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 c. whole or 2% milk
  • 1 c. strongly brewed coffee
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. cinnamon chips


  • 3 tbsp. strongly brewed coffee
  • 1/2 tsp. instant coffee granules
  • 2 c. powdered sugar


For bread pudding:

  1. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish with non-stick spray. Layer the donut pieces in the dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter, sugar, eggs, milk, coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla. Whisk until well-blended.
  3. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the donuts.
  4. Sprinkle the cinnamon chips evenly over the donuts.
  5. Cover the dish with foil, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove foil, and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until custard is set and edges of the donuts are golden brown.

For glaze:

  1. In a small bowl, combine coffee, instant coffee, and powdered sugar. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over bread pudding while it's still warm.

Recipe Notes

If donuts are not already stale, bake them on an ungreased baking sheet at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
