  • 20-24 glazed donut holes
  • 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk 1 tbsp of Cinnamon
  • 1 box (15.25 oz) French vanilla cake mix 1.5 sticks of butter, sliced thin


    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
    Lay donut holes out in the bottom of the dish
    Add the evaporated milk
    Drizzle the sweetened condensed milk all across the pan Sprinkle cinnamon over the entire dish
    Sprinkle entire box of cake mix
    Top with sliced butter
    *DO NOT MIX*
    Bake for 45 mins

Mixing the ingredients will take away the texture this bread pudding hack achieves.
The canned milk and condensed milk will soften the donut holes while baking, making them easy to cut. The butter will melt across the cake mix and allow it to imitate a crumble.
