Leftovers bread pudding!

A few days ago I made croissants, as always - I made way too many!

I thought what can I make with the leftover croissants that have already lost its freshness ...

I don't like to throw away food, from leftovers you can make something delicious and beautiful.

So I made a killer bread pudding!

Although I used croissants, it can also be made from leftover bread, preferably a challah or brioche bread.

But really, any bread that is left in a drawer and starting to dry out can be used.

The recipe is truly an impromptu recipe, feel free to change it depending on what is in your pantry in terms of portions or toppings.

And most importantly ... do not throw away food :)


  • Leftover bread / challah / croissants (I used 400 grams)

  • 100 ml heavy cream

  • 250 ml milk

  • Half a teaspoon of cinnamon

  • teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons maple

  • 1 egg

  • Half a teaspoon of salt

  • A pinch of nutmeg

  • Spoon of brown sugar sprinkle on top

  • You can also add - nuts, raisins or chocolate chips

  • Butter

  • Optional - powdered sugar and whipped cream for serving


  • Spread butter on a pan.

  • Tear the leftover bread into pieces and place in the pan.

  • Optional - mix chocolate chips / raisins / nuts with the bread.

  • In a bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients.

  • Pour the batter into the pan evenly so that all the pieces of bread will absorb it.

  • Squeeze the bread slightly with a spoon and let the batter absorb well.

  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

  • When the oven got to 200 degrees, sprinkle a tablespoon of brown sugar on top of the bread pudding.

  • Bake for 35-40 minutes.

  • It is best served with a little icing sugar on top and whipped cream on the side.

Enjoy! :)
