Print Recipe
This Chocolate Donut Bread Pudding is a twist on classic bread pudding. This leftover donut recipe is the perfect way to use stale donuts. The donuts are baked in a creamy custand and topped with luscious bourbon sauce.


  • 3 cups leftover donuts chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon bourbon
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla paste

Bourbon Sauce

  • 2 ounces heavy whipping cream
  • 1.75 ounces sugar
  • Pinch cinnamon
  • ¼ ounce water
  • ¼ ounce butter
  • ¼ teaspoon cornstarch
  • ¼ ounce bourbon


  • Preheat the oven to 325° and have a small baking dish that holds about 4 cups liquid.
  • Place the donut cubes in a medium sized bowl.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, chocolate chips, heavy whipping cream, sugar, bourbon and vanilla paste. Pour over the donuts.
  • Pour all ingredients into baking dish. Bake on a small sheet pan for 40 minutes until the top is set, and no runny egg is revealed after a few pricks with a toothpick.

To make the sauce:

  • Place the cream, sugar, cinnamon, in a small saucepan and bring to boil.
  • In a small bowl mix water and cornstarch to make a slurry. Add the slurry to the cream mixture in saucepan and bring back to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and add butter and bourbon. Stir until fully blended.
  • Serve the bread pudding warm with the bourbon sauce.
