Little raspberry bread and butter puddings recipe

Bread and butter pudding gets a delicious makeover with croissants and raspberries replacing the white bread and sultanas. Serve it in individual ramekins and it will be the talk of your next dinner party.

Serving Size:

Serves 6



  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) cream
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • butter, for greasing
  • 8 mini croissants
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen raspberries


Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan-forced).

Whisk together eggs, milk, cream, sugar and vanilla. Place mixture into a jug.

Grease 6, three-quarter cup ramekins with butter. Cut croissants roughly into 1.5cm cubes and place into ramekins, layering with raspberries as you go.

Pour custard mixture into ramekins, ensuring all of the croissant pieces become soaked in the liquid. Place the ramekins onto a tray lined with baking paper and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.

Dust with icing sugar and serve with good quality vanilla ice cream.


  • Day-old croissants are best for the this recipe. You could use a couple of large croissants instead.
  • You could bake these ahead of time and reheat them prior to serving.
