  • Author: Chew Out Loud
  • Yield: 2-4 1x


This Nutella Bread Pudding wins everyone over! Serve with fruits for breakfast/brunch, or with ice cream for dessert. Nobody ever complains, no matter what time of day. Super easy, decadent, and perfect. You won’t regret it. (This one’s not recommended for overnight soaking.)


  • 3 large, flaky croissants (preferably 12 days old)
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • Optional Toppings: Chopped pecans, walnuts, hazelnuts, or mini chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Butter or grease a small baking dish, such as a 9×5 loaf pan.
  3. Slice each croissant in half lengthwise and spread one side with Nutella. Place halves back together to make “Nutella sandwiches.” Cut each filled croissant into 2-inch pieces.
  4. Place sandwich pieces into prepared baking dish. Set aside.
  5. In a bowl, combine eggs, cream, milk, vanilla extract, salt, and sugar, whisking to combine well.
  6. Pour custard over the croissant sandwich pieces, gently pushing bread down so every piece is soaked with custard. Allow custard to sit and absorb for approx. 10-15 minutes.
  7. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking 10-15 minutes more, or until top is golden brown and bread has risen/puffed up. Liquid should appear completely absorbed.
  8. Let sit to cool about 10-15 minutes before serving. Serve with berries for brunch, or ice cream for dessert.
  9. *Recipe makes enough for 2-4 people, so double it if you want to feed more people.
