Love Bread and Butter Pudding? This easy Croissant Pudding is going to quickly become your new favourite dessert!
I was never really a fan of Bread and Butter Pudding when I was growing up, just the whole idea of soggy bread and milk just turned me right off, crazy I know! Since then you will be pleased to know that I have given it a try a couple of times and it was the inspiration for this easy Croissant Pudding recipe.
This Croissant Pudding recipe is one of those easy desserts which is just perfect if you are entertaining as you can easily put it together and then pop it into the oven while you enjoy the company of your family – or break up fights between your kids if you are like me! Apart from the croissants, you are most likely to have the rest of the ingredients for this recipe already in your pantry and fridge (or if croissants are a regular staple in your house, can I please move in?) and although you can enjoy this yummy pudding straight from the oven, it’s also really nice with ice-cream or custard too.
Tips for Making this Easy Croissant Pudding
- You can use those smaller sized croissants that you can find at the supermarket, you will however need more to fill the baking dish.
- The sultanas can be omitted from this recipe.
- This dessert is best enjoyed the day it’s made but will also be yummy warmed up and eaten the following day.
