Croissant Bread Pudding
Classic old fashioned bread pudding served warm with caramel sauce is one of my top favorite desserts. Left over bread can be converted into a baked classy and yummy dessert in no time. Instead of the traditional bread this recipe uses the rich buttery croissant bread. Flaky buttery bread with rich custard takes this dessert to the next level. Add chocolate chips, nuts or raisins and serve warm or chilled. This recipe is inspired from Nigella Lawson show.Try this,you will surely love it.
Croissant bread- 8 (mini or 4 regular)
Eggs large- 5
Milk- 1 1/2 cup
Heavy cream- 1 1/4 cup
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Semi sweet chocolate chips-1/2 cup
Butter- 1 tsp
Salt- a pinch
Rum extract- 1/2 tsp
Vanilla extract- 1 tsp
Pre heat oven to 350 degree. Melt butter and grease baking dish with it and spread the left over butter in the pan.
Slice croissants lengthwise but not all the way through. Place this in a single layer in the baking dish.
In a bowl whisk eggs, sugar and salt till light and fluffy. Now add milk and heavy cream, vanilla extract and rum extract and whisk well.
Pour this over the croissants and gently press the bread so that it absorbs the liquid. Let it satnd for ten minutes or you can chill in the refrigerator for an hour. Sprinkle chocolate chips just before putting it into the oven
Bake the pudding in the center of the oven, for 30 minutes or till the pudding is puffed and golden. The pudding is set when the knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow it to cool down and then serve.
Hope you will all enjoy!
