Berry-Maple Bread Pudding

A good friend of mine gave me a very cute set of measuring spoons, and as a show of appreciation and friendship to her, I created this tasty dish. It is a maple syrup egg custard with croissants and a very sweet berry sauce. With the butteriness of the croissants, the sweetness of syrup, and the slight tanginess of the berries, this is a wonderful combination. The colors of berries brighten up your table, too! This dish is great for both dessert and brunch.

Berry-Maple Bread Pudding


(Recipe by:Chef Yasue Siewert)


Prep.: 20 minutes
Cook: 35 minutes


Makes 4 to 6 servings

Place berries and sugar in a small-size saucepan over medium-heat and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and maple syrup. Cut the croissants into bite size pieces by hand and add into egg mixture and soak until croissant pieces absorb the mixture.

In a baking dish, add half of croissant pieces and distribute evenly. Add berries sauce over them. Distribute rest of croissant pieces on top of that.

Sprinkle some berries and powdered sugar on top.
