If there are any leftover donuts from Saturday, chop them up for sweet bread pudding. Top it with vanilla-rum sauce to make it luscious and spicy. We're ok if you add ice cream and eat it for breakfast to cure a hangover.

Ingredients

Cake Donuts, broken into 1-inch pieces16
Raisins or Dried Cranberries or Blueberries (optional)1/2 cup
Custard:
Large Eggs5
Heavy Whipping Cream2 cups
Vanilla Extract2 tsp.
Ground Cinnamon1 tsp.
Butter, melted, cooled slightly3/4 cup
Vanilla, Cinnamon, or Rum-Raisin Ice Cream, melted, for serving (optional)1 pint
Granulated Sugar3/4 cup

Preparation

Lightly butter a 9- by 13-inch baking pan. Layer the donuts in an even thickness in the pan. Distribute the raisins over the top, if using. Drizzle evenly with the butter.

Make the custard: In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, cream, vanilla, and cinnamon. Whisk in the butter. Pour over the donuts. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes, periodically pushing the donuts down into the custard. Cover with foil.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 350F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Bake the bread pudding for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the custard is set. Remove the foil and continue to bake for 10 additional minutes to lightly brown the top.

Let cool slightly before cutting into squares. Drizzle with melted ice cream, if desired.
