Are you ready for this? 3 ingredient Croissant Bread Pudding (a repost)

Here's a SIMPLE, yet MOTHER'S DAY Worthy recipe that even kids can make!

Yep! You heard me correctly. Only three ingredients- but tastes like you really fussed.

Mom made this the other day- just whipped it up and it was so good and so easy. Just had to share it.

She said the original recipe called for chocolate croissants, but she couldn't find them, so she went with the regular.

Of course, a traditional bread pudding from scratch can't be beat- but this is very good- especially considering it only requires 3 ingredients.

Perfect to serve as a special breakfast, or brunch or a dessert.

You will need:

4 ( 4 oz. ) Croissants
2 pkgs. ( 3oz. each) Cook and Serve Vanilla pudding and pie filling.
4 cups whole milk

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 3 qt. shallow baking dish. Whisk pudding mix and milk in bowl till thoroughly blended. Cut croissants into 1 " pieces. Arrange in baking dish. Pour pudding mixture over croissants. Push bread down into liquid to make sure it is covered. Bake for 50 minutes(till bubbly around edges or knife inserted in center comes out clean).

Let cool 10 minutes before serving.



  1. What a great shortcut recipe. I usually make Ina Gartens croissant bread pudding, this sounds fantastic, lots less work!

  2. Nice...and chocolate croissants, I love them...I could make some up and then turn them into this...hmmmm....craving it now!!!

  3. i have anew appreciation for bread pudding... so many recipes, and always comes out great!

  7. Doesn't this sound yummy! I love those recipe with just a few ingredients, especially for times when you're having company, or just having a super busy schedule at the moment. This looks mmmmm-good :)

  8. How can you possibly go wrong starting with croissants??!!!! The chocolate is probably good, but I'm betting I'd love the regular too. Yum-O Sherri!

  9. The use of the pie filling/pudding is really interesting. I've never heard of that before. It sounds like it is an interesting substitution for the typical eggs and adds tons of flavor.

  10. Awesome recipe. I'm trying this one on the weekend.
