This makes for a deliciously buttery, buttercream-studded variety of bread pudding, soft and sweet in the middle, and punctuated by sweet, crunchy bits of frosting on top, which reached a semi-caramelized state during the baking process. Happy post-birthday, indeed.

  • Yield:12-16
  • Active time: 15 minutes
  • Total time:2 hours


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cans (12 ounces each) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 3 slices (1 pound) birthday cake, cubed
  • sprinkles, for topping (optional)


  1. 1.

    Preheat your oven to 325°F. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Set to the side.

  2. 2.

    In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add the sweetened condensed milk, sugar, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Gently stir in the cubed cake, frosting and all. It may begin to break up in the wet mixture; don't panic. It will bake up just fine. If you'd like, garnish with sprinkles.

  3. 3.

    Pour into your prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold.
