Ingredients Needed to Make Blueberry Croissant Bread Pudding
I love how this bread pudding is so easy to make. In my opinion, compared to other bread puddings, this croissant version gives a much flakier and crispier crust!
Can’t find any fresh blueberries? You can use frozen blueberries instead. Simply place them in a bowl of cold water for 3 to 4 minutes to thaw then lightly pat them dry with paper towels.
How to Serve Blueberry Croissant Bread Pudding
This bread pudding is delicious served warm for breakfast or dessert… and it’s even good cold! It can be served in so many different ways, too.
Serve it topped with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or with more fresh blueberries. A dollop of whipped cream or a drizzle of maple syrup would also be so yummy! Although none of that is necessary as this buttery bread pudding is delicious on its own!
Blueberry Croissant Bread Pudding Variations
If you’re not a fan of blueberries or in the mood for another flavor, I bet any fruit would be fabulous in this. Think raspberries, blackberries, or even cherries!
Storing Croissant Bread Pudding
Although this bread pudding is delicious, I doubt you’ll eat it all in one sitting. Luckily, you can keep it in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Leftovers can be reheated in the oven at 350˚F. Cover with foil and bake until warmed through – usually about 15 minutes.
