Cake Bread Pudding

Ashley from Domestic Batch shares a great baking idea and recipe for when you’ve baked more cake than you can eat and don’t want to let it go to waste:

Cake Bread Pudding


    For the Pudding
  • 5 cups + 1 cup of cake (divided), cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 cups of coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • For the Glaze
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • pinch of salt
  • coconut flakes for garnish, if desired


    For the Bread Pudding
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray
  2. Place 5 cups of your cubed cake into a large bowl, set aside
  3. Beat eggs in a medium sized bowl, set aside
  4. In a medium sauce pan, heat your milk and butter on low to medium heat until the edges begin to bubble, butter is melted and milk is about to boil
  5. Slowly pour hot milk into beaten eggs whisking constantly as to not scramble your eggs
  6. Continue to whisk until smooth and add salt, almond extract, and cinnamon, whisk together
  7. Pour milk mixture over cake, then sugar, and gently toss with a spatula or spoon, cake may break apart a little or get very mushy, don't be scared
  8. Pour cake mixture into 9 x 13 pan, spread out evenly with spatula
  9. Take reserved 1 cup of cubed cake and place throughout mixture, especially where is looks like more liquid than cake
  10. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until edges begin to slightly pull away from pan and top is golden brown
  11. Allow to cool slightly before topping with glaze
  12. For the Glaze
  13. In a medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, salt and cornstarch, then pour in milk and whisk to remove lumps
  14. On medium heat bring to a boil, and whisk constantly for 1 minute, until mixture thickens
  15. Remove from heat, pour over bread pudding and sprinkle with coconut flakes, or garnish of your choosing
  16. Store remaining in refrigerator sealed or tightly wrapped
