Slow Cooked Doughnut Bread Pudding

I don't know about you. But I've been in a dessert mood this summer. Something about the heat that makes me want sweets. I had this fabulous bread pudding the other day made with donuts. Here it is if you want to try it.

Doughnut Bread Pudding

24 doughnut holes, cut in half (or 1 dozen glazed krispy kremes cut in quarters)
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c melted margarine
2 c milk
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 c raisins

To make sauce:
1 c water
1/2 c sugar
2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp melted margarine
1 tsp vanilla

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Add doughnut pieces. Mix eggs, sugar, 1/4 c margarine, milk, nutmeg & cinnamon in a bowl until smooth. Add raisins and pour over bread. Cook on High for 1 hour. To make sauce: combine water, sugar, flour, 2 tbsp margarine and vanilla in a sauce pan. Cook, stir, until sauce thickens. Serves 5.
