Recipe: Key Lime Bread Pudding

Key Lime Bread Pudding

Key Lime Bread Pudding with a Coconut Milk Glaze

I have to admit this Key Lime Bread Pudding was really more of an experiment than a vision, but it worked.

Key limes (or their juice) are vital to this dessert recipe. And rather than French bread (which I normally use in bread pudding), I used donut holes to give it added sweetness.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Key Lime Bread Pudding Ingredients

    Key Lime Bread Pudding Ingredients

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice
  • 3 dozen day-old donut holes, torn into 1/4-inch pieces

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Key Lime Bread Pudding with Donut Holes

  3. Combine first seven ingredients in a large bowl and stir well.
  4. Add donut holes and toss gently to coat. Let stand for 30 minutes to 1 hour or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
  5. Spread mixture evenly into a baking dish coated with butter or non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Bake at 350F for 40-45 minutes or until bread pudding sets.
  7. Garnish with a key lime slice and serve.

For a topping, I combined a little coconut milk and some sugar to give it a really tropical vibe.

If you can’t get donut holes, just buy donuts and tear them into bite-sized pieces. You may even sweet talk a donut shop into giving you some stale donuts or donut holes for cheap.

  • To make sure I didn’t eat the whole pan, I took this to the office and it disappeared in a few hours. It’s that good.
