- 1 Dozen Glazed Donuts
- 3 Eggs
- 1 Cup Whole Milk
- 1 3/4 Cups Heavy Cream
- 3/4 Cups Brown Sugar
- 1/2 Tsp. Salt
- 1/2 Tsp. Vanilla
- 1/4 Tsp. Cinnamon
Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan. Cut each donut into about 6 pieces and place all of the pieces into the pan.
In a medium size bowl, mix your eggs, milk, sugar, cream, salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Once mixed well, pour over the top of your cut donuts, trying to cover as much of them as you can. If needed, press the donuts into the liquid to help them absorb a little bit more.
Cover you baking pan, and refrigerate for 30 minutes, while waiting, pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.
Once the donuts are all chilled, uncover your baking dish and bake for 40 minutes.
Serve the glazed donut bread pudding warm with a delicious vanilla glaze on top. Yum!
- 2/3 cups butter
- 3 Tablespoons flour
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3/4 cups sugar
Melt your butter over low heat. Next, add the flour and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring continually. Add the salt, cream, and sugar and stir until the glaze becomes thicker. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. The consistency will still be thin and a bit runny. Pour over your warm donut bread pudding. It makes the perfect gooey glaze to enjoy every delicious bite even more!
