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.
