Leftover Chocolate Donut Pudding #Choctoberfest #BundtBakers

This is a sponsored post.  I received product for use in creating recipes for Choctoberfest.  Sponsors also provided gifts for me to offer in a giveaway during this event.  All opinions, writings and content are my own.

Decadent and rich, this baked pudding is made from leftover Chocolate Donuts with Chocolate Chips.  You could easily use any flavor donuts or any cake that you have as well. It is a great way to re-purpose those desserts into a brand new dish.

Today is my final installment for the week long Choctoberfest that we have been enjoying and also my post for this month's edition of Bundt Bakers.........

I hope you have been enjoying Choctoberfest, hosted by Allison of Triple Chocolate Kitchen and sponsored by Imperial Sugar and Divine Chocolate as much as I.  Have you entered the raffle yet for the wonderful gift package?  Head on over to my Welcome Post and do so now before you forget!

In fact, this recipe that I am sharing with you today is made from some of those donuts that were leftover from the Welcome Post.  

When Sneha of Sneha's Recipe invited the Bundt Bakers to share a baked pudding recipe today, I knew that I wanted to make a chocolate bread pudding so that I could tie it in with Choctoberfest.  When I got ready to make my pudding, I spied some of my donuts still sitting on the counter, along with the Chocolate Sandwich Cookies I shared Tuesday and the Pumpkin Brownies with Chocolate Swirl that I shared yesterday.  

I kind of dreaded having 4 desserts up there on my counter, calling my name each time I walked past.  So I packaged up the cookies and took them to a bake sale at my church.  And then I decided that instead of using bread for my pudding, I would use the donuts.  Boy, am I glad I did.  This pudding is absolutely wonderful!!

Bread pudding was created because people had stale bread and, like me, hated wasting food.  So they mixed it with milk, eggs and vanilla, popped it into the oven and out came a delicious concoction perfect for breakfast, brunch or dessert.  So it made sense that any type of bread could be used.  Donuts, muffins, cakes......any of these can be used in the same way and you will end up with a wonderful new dessert to feed your family.  So pull those leftovers out of the freezer and use them in the recipe that I am sharing with you today.

First though, let's take a look at the other Baked Puddings being shared today.....


#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all of our lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about BundtBakers, can be found on our home page.

I'm also anxious to share the links to our Choctoberfest participants today.  We are in chocolate heaven this week!!!  Keep in mind that though this is my last post for this event, the others will be sharing more recipes on Friday and Saturday.  You can find them by following #Choctoberfest on social media platforms.

  1. Bread pudding is a great way to repurpose stale bread but using doughnuts is an even more fabulous idea, Wendy. Brilliant!

    1. Thanks Stacy. My counter couldn't hold any more desserts LOL....

  2. This is a brilliant repurposing - that chocolate came out gorgeous!! I know what you mean about redistributing / reusing; the baked goods have over-flowethed (that's totally a word) at my house the past month or so!!

  3. I've never heard of donut pudding but I love this idea! <3

  4. Waste not want not! Great use of leftovers. I'm sure I would have to buy some for this recipe. Chocolate doughnuts don't last long at my house. It looks rich and delicious!

  5. This is soooo cool! And I know what you mean by having too many desserts calling my name. Especially this week!

    1. It's been a crazy week and now today I am making two more desserts!!! I need to get to the gym LOL.

  6. Wow Wendy! What a perfect way to use leftovers, we women who run the kitchen find ways to leftovers and this is the best.

  7. I made this recipe, but I confess I made a few changes: I wanted a cake not a pudding.
    5 egg whites beat to soft peaks with 1/2 tsp cream of tartar. Set aside.
    240gm sour cream and
    5 egg yolks beat well
    Add I tsp baking soda. Beat
    Add in 8 broken up doughnuts (I had chocolate and vanilla glazed Dunkin’)
    Beat well until homogeneous
    Add in 12 oz melted chocolate chips
    Add in egg white foam
    Bake in greased bunt 350 x60 min
    Glaze with your favorite chocolate glaze

    1. Sounds wonderful. Glad my recipe inspired you to make such a delicious sounding dessert.
