What do you do with spare donuts? Who even has spare donuts? Just me then?There’s no way I’m going to start throwing donuts away; it goes against everything that I stand for. My mind began looking for ways to use the donuts in a new recipe.
Before I knew it, I was making custard and preparing the donuts for their next incarnation as a delightful take on bread and butter pudding. This is such an easy recipe and yet the result is delicious. The next time you’ve got too many donuts, you’ll know exactly what to do!
6 donuts (I used 3 jam and 3 custard)
300ml double cream
100g soft light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla paste/ vanilla essence
Quarter the donuts and place in an oven proof dish that’s deep enough to fill with custard almost to the top of each piece. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and then add the remaining ingredients. Whisk thoroughly and have fun pouring the mixture over the donuts. Cover the dish with foil and place in the middle of an oven at 180 degrees for about 40 minutes.
The custard will be wobbly, but set and the donuts will be hot and very soft. They’ll simply yield to your spoon. Yum!
