Too sweet. I replace one doz donuts with cinnamon bread and instead of raisins use fresh cranberries. Sauce is 1/4 cup water boiled with 1 cup sugar and one stick butter for a few minutes then put in rum item not reviewed by moderator and published

Holiday only...but it is very tasty and no leftovers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Am making this for the third time. Makes you want to "slap yo mama" good. I made some changes to mine. since I'm not a fan of fruit cocktail used crushed pineapple or diced peaches. My church raved! This time added nuts :ie pecans. Have not used the sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dessert was a crowed pleaser. It made enough for every one at our Memorial Day celebration. Surely will be something to have only on special occasions and holidays. I used 24 doughnuts from Gibson's a hometown bakery here in Memphis. Turned out great. However, I did use 2 of the regular sized cans of fruit cocktail and 2 cans of the condensed milk. One extra special addition into the dessert was the B. Lloyds peanut and pecan toppings. Butter "Rum" sauce was perfect. Plus, this dessert paired well along side vanilla ice cream. Very Easy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this recipe sometime back and everyone loved it. I am thinking about using Dunkin Donuts pumpkin flavor this year. I think it will be great also. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great bread pudding with a new twist - The donuts give it a great flavor. I believe the amount of fruit cocktail should read 2-14 1/2oz instead of the 2-4 1/2 cans. It was great with the added fruit cocktail. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this recipe!! It is great! I'm not a fan of bread pudding in general, but this is different. Thanks Paula for such a creative use for donuts that may be past their prime. O, to Rochelle in San Jose: What make being an American so great is that we can CHOOSE to make this recipe or not. If it's not your "cup o' tea" then pick another recipe and don't try to be the food police! Actually, there is a tab at the top of the page for healthy eating, I think you should CHOOSE that tab and leave our beloved Paula alone! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I try this recipe and I add 1 ingredient a can of jams, and it was delicious! My whole family was surprise of how tasty was this Donut Bread Pudding. Thank you Paula. Sweet cooking Mrs. Rojas item not reviewed by moderator and published
And misleading...this is nothing like traditional bread pudding or any other bread pudding I've ever had. It has an overall ok flavor but somehow the sweetness needs to be scaled back but by a bunch! And the sauce is WAY too much!!! It would probably be better with a different sauce or no sauce at all. Also, a lot of the tops of the donuts kind of scorched so I had to pick them out. Any raisins on the top will for sure burn. All in all, not a repeat in my book. Sad. I love most all of Paula's stuff. item not reviewed by moderator and published
i really like paula deans recipes but this wasn't a winner. Its consistency wasn't good at all. It was too thick, to sweet and tasted like a mushy doughnut. I think i would have just enjoyed the doughnuts on their own better. Sorry Paula but i give this a D item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe hoping for something different. I felt that it was much too sweet and didn't have the right distribution of flavor/ moisture that you would expect out of a bread pudding. The fruit cocktail was a little odd in the mix of it all.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
