Bread Pudding Recipe

Ingredients

2 dozen day old Krispy Kreme donuts

One 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)

Two 4.5-ounce cans fruit cocktail (undrained)

2 eggs, beaten

One 9-ounce box golden raisins

1 pinch salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

2 teaspoons nutmeg

Butter Rum Sauce, recipe follows

Butter Rum Sauce:

1 stick butter

1 pound box confectioners' sugar

Rum, to taste

Directions

• Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

• In large bowl, mix together sweetened condensed milk, fruit cocktail, eggs, and raisins, if using.

• Cube donuts into a large bowl. Pour bowl of other ingredients on top of donuts and let soak for about 15 minutes, or in the fridge for a few hours. It just depends on how firm or soft of a texture you’re going for. If you let it soak for a shorter time the donuts on top form more of a crust.

• Bake for about 1 hour until center has jelled. Top with Butter Rum Sauce.

Butter Rum Sauce:

• Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Slowly stir in confectioners' sugar. Add rum and heat until bubbly.

*The center of the bread pudding gets so hot that I will take it out of the oven right before I leave for an event. If you cover it well with aluminum foil the whole thing will stay hot for a long time*
