It won’t take much time or effort to prepare this dessert that you can expect your loved ones to enjoy!
What types of honey buns should I use?
The best honey buns to use are traditional honey buns, which you can easily find at any grocery store. One of my personal favorites is Kristy Kreme Brand Honey Buns! If you love the iced ones better than the regular honey buns, feel free to use them for a super sweet bread pudding. Also, if you like to make your own honey buns from scratch, you can always do that and use them in this recipe. It’s entirely up to you!
Can I use a sugar substitute?
Yes, you can use a sugar substitute, such as stevia or my personal favorite, splenda. However, it might alter the taste of the bread pudding a bit, so that is something you’d need to consider. Your best bet is to stick with traditional granulated sugar when you’re preparing this baked dessert.
How long does it take to make this dish?
It takes about an hour from start to finish to prepare this bread pudding. You’ll spend roughly 10 minutes preparing the ingredients, followed by letting it cook for 50 minutes, so you don’t have to worry about wasting much time in the kitchen trying to assemble it.
Do I have to use cinnamon?
No, you don’t have to use cinnamon, but it does add a special touch to this pudding, you can always do just a regular icing glaze!
Notes & Suggestions
It might seem like this recipe is full of sugar, but it has less sugar than typical bread puddings because the honey buns are already sweet enough without having to add too much more to it.
If you’re a fan of custard-like bread pudding, you’re going to enjoy this recipe even more because it has that custardy texture.
You can expect the top of this bread to get slightly crisp and caramelized. However, the inside will stay soft, moist, and warm, making this Honey Bun Bread Pudding absolutely irresistible.
How to Store Leftovers
You can store your bread pudding in the dish that you baked it in, covering it with a glass lid or aluminum foil, whichever you have available to use. If you want to save space, allow your bread pudding to cool before transferring it to a food storage container with a lid that would take up a bit less space than the baking dish.
There is less sugar in this recipe than other bread puddings due to the honeybuns already being sweet.
This bread pudding is more on the custardy side.
I love that the top gets crisp and caramelized while the inside stays soft.
I have not tried this recipe with frosted honeybuns, just regular as I made my own homemade glaze for this recipe.
