Author's Notes

Serves 4-6 portions.

We are using dry croissants as they offer a flaky buttery taste. Feel free to substitute with your favorite bread for this recipe. The dry croissants allow the custard mixture to soak into the bread.

If you are using fresh croissants, the night before, toast your sliced croissants lightly to remove excess moisture. In a preheated oven at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C), place your bread slices in a single layer and bake for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through. The croissants should be dry to the touch but not yet turning brown. Transfer to a cutting board and allow to cool.

Soaking overnight allows the mixture to saturate the bread completely and gives the convenience of not fussing in the morning. If you are strapped for time, 15 minutes would be a recommended minimum for this recipe.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
In a baking dish line the Croissants (6) upright with the dish. Arrange your croissants in a zigzag pattern, making as much contact as you can with the bottom of the baking dish.
step 2
Next, prepare the custard. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the Eggs (6), Evaporated Milk (1 can), Whole Milk (1 cup), Brown Sugar (1/3 cup), Vanilla Extract (1 Tbsp), Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp), Whole Nutmeg (1/2 tsp), and Salt (1 tsp) until a homogeneous mixture is achieved.
step 3
Pour the custard mixture evenly over the croissants, making sure to soak all pieces of the bread as much as possible and cover with foil. Refrigerate overnight.
step 4
When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
step 5
Sprinkle on Granulated Sugar (2 Tbsp) and Unsalted Butter (3 Tbsp). Then bake, still covered with the foil for 20 minutes and uncovered for 10 minutes or until no liquid seeps out of the bread.
step 6
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a minimum of 10 minutes. Serve with a dusting of Powdered Confectioners Sugar (to taste), Yogurt (1/3 cup), and Maple Syrup (3 Tbsp). Slice into squares and serve with your Fresh Raspberries (1 1/3 cups) and Fresh Blueberry (1 cup).
