And that is coming from someone who doesn’t really love red velvet.

Don’t throw things!  I’ve tried to like it, I really have.  Maybe I just don’t understand it . . . like I know what the flavor vanilla is.  Mint?  Totally.  Chocolate?  Well, yeah!  But red velvet . . . . I mean, what is it?  Besides really intensely red?

But for the love of the blog, I gave it a go.

With bread pudding.

Ummm . . . . bread pudding might be the greatest thing ever.  It’s my favorite dessert that I don’t get enough of.  And I think now I’m going to turn every kind of everything into bread pudding.

This dessert is so easy to make, and it is absolutely decadent.  If you are having a dinner party and you make this for your guests, pulling it out of the oven piping hot, serve it with a little bit of ice cream . . . they will think that you are a culinary whizz.  It is that good.

Now.  What else can I do with red velvet . . . ?

Red Velvet Bread Pudding


  • 16.5 oz red velvet cake mix (and the ingredients it calls for), made into 24 cupcakes
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 TBSP vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips divided


  1. Cut your cupcakes, about an hour after baking them, into quarters and lay them out on a baking sheet overnight.
  2. When you are ready to make your bread pudding, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Mix the eggs, milk, heavy cream and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add your cupcake chunks. Mix until all the cupcake chunks are completely covered in the mixture. Let it sit for about 10 minutes.
  4. Prepare a 9 by 13 inch glass baking pan by spraying it with cooking spray. Mix a half a cup of chocolate chips into the mixture. Spread it into the baking dish and top with the remaining chocolate chips. Bake for 40 minutes.


This is a two day recipe, so plan ahead

    I know! I’m trying to make a scratch red velvet recipe and I’m all…what’s it supposed to taste like??? Cake? With some flavor other than red? It’s really hard to figure that out. Give me chocolate or vanilla any day. But bread pudding made out of cupcakes? YES!

    Lisa…you just haven’t had my red velvet cake! It is a “light cocoa” cake with tumor-causing amounts of red food coloring, plus a sweet bechamel frosting. AND…it is heaven on a plate. Next time I make it, I’ll bring you over a slice…you. will. be. changed. Yes, I’m tooting my own horn. Deal.
    This recipe looks so yummy! <3
