The Best Croissant Bread Pudding That’s Tasty And Easy To Make.

2 hours



This croissant bread pudding is made with amazing toasted, flakey croissants covered in creamy vanilla custard. This pudding is rich, decadent, and one of the most amazing baked goods. The flavors of vanilla, orange, and blueberries all give the bread a fantastic fruity taste. This is the ultimate comfort dessert, snack, or breakfast. 

When I owned a café, I would have some leftover croissants once in a while. I would keep them in the freezer, and when I had enough, I would make my famous croissant bread pudding. My customers always went crazy over my croissant pudding, so I thought I would share the recipe with you. Here it is! 

Tips For The Best Bread Pudding

  • After adding custard to the bread, wait to bake the pudding for 20 minutes until all the custard gets absorbed. Otherwise, you will end up with mushy bread pudding.
  • I like to use croissants since they are less likely to dry out. 
  • Bake it until it is creamy but set. The pudding should be golden-brown once it is finished baking. 

What Bread Should I Use For this Pudding? 

There is no rule for how to make bread pudding. You could use French bread, Italian bread, challah, brioche, or croissants. Pick a soft and buttery bread that will pair well with custard. Just make sure the bread is dry enough to absorb the custard. Stale bread works best for absorbing custard. 

What Should I Add to this dessert? 

You can add anything you want, so add your favorite toppings and get creative! You can add fruit , such as strawberries, figs, and blueberries. You can even add dried fruits such as dried apples. A classic recipe includes cinnamon and raisins. Bittersweet chocolate chips and marshmallows are also an excellent addition. Try out different toppings, and most of all, have fun making them! 

How to Make Bread Pudding Moist

The most important part of making it moist is to add lots of custard. You can also add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the croissant pudding. The vanilla ice cream will melt onto the pudding and make a sweet and creamy dessert. This taste amazing and can be the best pudding for any parties.

And next day if you are feeling extremely full after all that sweet goodness, you must try something vegan and low card like Oatmeal Drenched with Homemade Almond Milk. Now, on to the recipe.

Pour the custard on top of the croissant, gently pressing on the croissant until they merge under and absorb all the custard. Then leave the croissants soaking in the bread for 20 minutes.
This is the messy part. Remove the top-soaked croissant and put them aside in a bowl. Scatter the fresh blueberries on top and add the top part of the croissant. Pour any extra custard mixture on the full brush with the rest of the melted butter.

How to Store Bread Pudding?
If you happen to have leftover bread pudding, you can store it in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator. You can store it for 1-3 days in the refrigerator. To reheat the croissant bread pudding, place it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. You can also reheat it in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until it becomes warm.

How To Freeze Croissant Bread Pudding?
Let the bread pudding completely cool before freezing the bread pudding. You can wrap the whole bread pudding tray in multiple layers of saran wrap so that it is fully sealed. The bread pudding can also be frozen in individual slices. Place the pieces in an airtight plastic container and keep them in the freezer. You can freeze the bread pudding for up to 3 months.
