Croissant and Apricot Butter Puddings

This is just a variation of a bread and butter pudding - I've used croissants instead of bread and added apricot jam into the mix.

While it's more common to make this as a large pudding as it is for Blog Party, I've made individual serves.

Croissant and Apricot Butter Puddings

croissants, cut into thin slices
apricot jam
softened butter

Custard:
1 egg
⅓ cup cream
⅓ cup milk
15 grams sugar


Make the custard:
I've listed the basic formula for the custard which can be easily multiplied to cope with a crowd - this amount should be enough to make 6 single serve puddings.

Place the egg, cream, milk and sugar into a bowl and whisk until just combined. Set aside until ready to use.

Make the pudding:
Lightly butter the slices of croissant and then top each slice with a little apricot jam (you can substitute your favourite jam or jelly).
Lay these slices, jam side up, into small pudding dishes - I used these ceramic muffin cases. There are two layers of croissant in each case and I only lightly pack the croissant into each case.

Place the dishes onto a baking tray and carefully pour over the custard mixture. Don't overfill, but allow the custard to be absorbed before adding more.

Bake in a preheated 180°C oven for around 20 minutes or until golden and puffed.

When cooked, remove to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.

These are best served warm.

  5. Easy and delicious - made some last weekend and I'm going to repeat this weekend for a party. Not sure if I will go with tiny ones again or one big one (I suppose the big one takes longer to cook... hmm..), but I'm sure it'll be delicious. Thanks so much for the fancy-seeming quick recipe :D

  6. Thanks SD - yes a bigger one does take longer to cook but it's also quicker to make. Glad you've enjoyed it!
