Croissant Bread and Butter Pudding
Croissant Bread and Butter Pudding
  • Serves: 4

  • Cooking time:

Making this delicious dessert with light, buttery croissant adds a continental twist to a British classic.


  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 7 medium croissants, halved lengthways and widthways
  • 50g sultanas
  • 50g ready to eat dried figs, roughly chopped
  • 50g ready to eat dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • 300ml full-fat milk
  • 300ml double cream
  • 5tbsp caster sugar
  • 75ml Baileys
  • 4 medium eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2tbsp apricot jam


  1. Preheat oven to 150 C, 300 F, gas 2. Butter a 23cm ovenproof dish and use the remaining butter to grease the croissant pieces. Arrange them in the dish, in a tight circular pattern and scatter with dried fruit, pushing some of it in between the slices.
  2. Place remaining ingredients, except for jam, in a large bowl whisking lightly to incorporate thoroughly. Pour over croissants and allow to stand for 20 mins. Don't worry if all the custard doesn't fit in - you can pour in the remainder just before baking, when the croissants will have soaked most of it up.
  3. Bake for 40-45 mins until set. Place jam in a bowl and stir in 1tbsp hot water from the kettle. Stir well and use to glaze pudding. Return to oven for 5 mins, then serve with vanilla ice cream.

I recommend this one - it comes out lovely!


So simple to put together yet so delicious and, because I used the cream and "extra special" type raisins, very "grown up" dinner party version. Lovely and will now be a firm family favourite.
