Croissant Pudding


6 large croissants 

6 large eggs

¾ cup sugar 

2 ¼ cup heavy cream 

2 tsp. Vanilla 

For the Syrup 

1 cup cream 

1 cup sugar

1 cube butter 

1 tsp vanilla 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 8×12 (or 7×11) pan and set aside. Layer your croissants in the pan making sure the entire surface is covered. Croissants should be squished in together. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs and sugar. Slowly incorporate the heavy cream and vanilla. Whisk until well combined. Pour the custard mixture over the top of the croissants. Push the croissants down with a spatula to help the custard soak a little bit to the tops of the bread. 

Place your croissant pudding pan into a larger pan (9×13) and fill the larger pan with water. The water should come halfway up to the pan with the croissants in it. Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour. 

For the syrup heat all ingredients on medium heat on the stovetop until the butter is completely melted. Drizzle the syrup on top of individual servings of croissant pudding.
