So, why Day-Old "Doughnut" Bread Pudding? My husband has been rebuilding an old Postal Jeep so doughnuts on Saturday morning have become a regular thing around our house since his dad has been coming over and helping. When Sunday or Monday comes around we usually have a couple of stale doughnuts left. When I opened the box of doughnuts to make the Doughnut Bread Pudding recipe this morning I had found I didn't have enough, but I didn't need a big batch so, adapt and adjust, right? Here's my version.
Day-Old "Doughnut" Bread Pudding (Serves 2)
1/2 Glazed doughnut (large)
1 Jelly doughnut (raspberry)
1/2 C milk (plus a splash)
1/2 t vanilla
1/2 t lemon emulsion
1/8 t nutmeg (fresh ground)
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t Turbinado sugar
Pull apart doughnuts into bite size pieces and place into two buttered ramekins distributing doughnut pieces evenly. Place ramekins on a baking sheet. In a small bowl mix together the egg, milk, vanilla, lemon emulsion, nutmeg and cinnamon. Pour the mixture over the doughnut pieces in both ramekins evenly then press the doughnut pieces down with a fork several times to help the doughnut pieces absorb the liquid. Let stand for 10 minutes then sprinkle with Turbinado sugar and bake at 350 for 30 minutes (until knife comes out clean). Serve warm.
