Caramelized Croissant Pudding with Maple Walnuts Recipe

When you’re road tripping, it’s hard to know exactly what food you’re going to find. I often pack a few essentials and then add to my stock along the way. If you’re like me and love to treat yourself to croissants but don't have time to eat them in their prime, this recipe is the perfect way to enjoy them. The extra butteriness of croissants will make my version of a bread and butter pudding your new family favorite.  

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup soft brown sugar  
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 croissants
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • Whipping cream to serve

COOKING TOOLS

  • 1 Medium mixing bowl
  • 2 Cast-iron frying pan

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a medium cast-iron frying pan with butter. You can also make this over an open fire using a Dutch oven.

Whisk the eggs, milk, cream, brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon in a bowl.

 Tear the croissants into small pieces and dip in the melted butter, then arrange in the frying pan, making sure all the edges of the croissants face upwards. The more points, the crispier the result.

 Pour the egg mixture evenly over the croissant pieces. Sprinkle with the walnuts, then drizzle the maple syrup over the top. Place in the oven or over the fire and cook for 15–20 minutes or until the custard is firm and cooked through.

 Serve hot or cold. And don’t forget to pour over lots of cream when you are ready to devour it. I save any leftovers in the fridge to have with my morning coffee.
