I have no memory of where I found this recipe. I really should be better about making those notations on my recipe cards. At any rate, this is a real treat!
BLUEBERRY CROISSANT BREAD PUDDING
2 extra large croissants
1/2 cup blueberry preserves (I used Polaner).
3 large eggs
1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 9-inch square baking dish with no-stick cooking spray. Cut croissants in half lengthwise. Spread each half with about 1 Tablespoon of the preserves. Replace tops. Cut into small strips. Place in prepared baking dish. Using small spoonfuls, dab remaining preserves on top.
- Whisk eggs. Whisk in sweetened condensed milk, water, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon until blended. Pour over cut-up croissants. Press larger pieces down into the liquid. Let set 5 minutes.
- Bake 45-50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar or maple syrup.
