Croissant Bread Pudding

Thanks to Joy the Baker, I was inspired to make my own Croissant Bread Pudding. You can also try using Hot Cross Buns too.

Therefore, I am going to bring breakfast to the office for everyone tomorrow. :)

This recipe feeds about 6 people.

All you need are:
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 bananas
2 large croissants
50g butter, softened

1) Pre-heat oven to 175 degrees.

2) Butter croissants and tear big chunks of it and just scatter it randomly in your dish.  (Big chunks because the croissant will absorb the pudding mixture and it might become a little to soggy if the pieces are too small.)
3) Slice bananas and scatter it randomly in between the croissant pieces.

4) Warm milk and sugar until all sugar is dissolved.

5) Whisk eggs in a bowl.

6) Slowly pour the warm milk mixture into the eggs, whisk continuously so that the warm milk doesn't cook the egg mixture.

7) Add vanilla extract into egg mixture, stir.
8) Pour egg mixture into your croissant and banana dish.
(if you like some crispy bits, do not soak all the croissants) overly excited until I forgot to take a picture of it before I put it in the oven..

9) Bake for 30-40 minutes.

10) When done, sprinkle (2 tsp sugar mixed with 1 tsp cinnamon) over your pudding. Let it cool down a little before serving.

Enjoy! :)
