Nutella Croissant Pudding

Buttery Croissants with Nutella spread. Flooded with custard; topped with nuts of your choice. Baked to perfection. You have an option to top it with whipped cream and Strawberries. Enjoy it warm or cold.

Nutella Croissant Pudding

During the times we spend in our kitchen, it is not avoidable that we make kitchen mess. So expect it every single time. We can clean that afterwards – not really a big deal. But broken glass? That’s a different story.

For someone who is a kitchen person, our kitchen toys are our best friends. You lose one, you lose a friend. That is why we do our best to keep them safe and treat them like our babies.

For the longest time, I’ve been meaning to make a croissant pudding. I always include it on the list, but for some reason, I keep delaying it. One day, I just can’t fight it anymore. A few servings of Nutella waited for a long time to be used as well, so I finally gave the croissant pudding a chance. I could not understand the feeling, but when I was preparing the baking pan, I thought of changing it. Instead of using the square glass baking pan, I wanted to use my favorite purple ceramic baking pan or the other rectangle baking pan which is about 9” x 5”. The point is I did not want to use the square glass baking pan. Why I did not change it? I have already greased the square baking pan and I don’t want to wash it again.

So I went on with the remaining stuffs to be prepared, covered the pan with a foil and put it inside the oven. When I removed the foil, I was shocked when I found out that the baking pan was beautifully sliced. Instead of removing the whole pan, I just removed the small part that has been sliced and I continued the baking. I can’t help it, but my tears just started to fall. 😥

When the pudding was cooked, I removed it from the oven and checked for cracks, but I found nothing. To be safe, I just cut the pudding near the sliced glass area and threw it… I ate the rest. 😀 Despite of what happened to the glass, I am just happy that no explosion took place. The baking pan just quietly did its thing.

On to the pudding… I loved it cold – straight from the fridge. But the incident took my focus away and I started slicing the pudding as soon as it got to room temperature. Still, it tastes great. You can really feel the pudding sinking in your teeth. This has just the right amount of sweetness. Nutella is not overpowering or even the custard. This is just perfect for Nutella or pudding lovers. Enjoy it warm or cold with your coffee, tea or any drink you think could go along with this awesome treat. This can be enjoyed as a breakfast, dessert or snack.

Nutella Croissant Pudding

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 3 croissants (preferably 1-2 days old)
  • 3/4 cup Nutella
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts (I used Pistachio, but almond would be great as well)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar, additional for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a small baking dish, 8 x 8 or 9 x 5 would work. Grease and set aside.
  2. Slice each croissant and spread Nutella. Put back together and cut into smaller pieces. Add the cut pieces to you prepared baking dish.
  3. To make the custard, add eggs, cream, vanilla, salt and sugar in a jug and mix until well incorporated. Pour this over the baking dish with croissant pieces, while pressing down the croissant to absorb the custard.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake again for another 10 minutes or until top of the bread is golden brown.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan.
  6. Cut and transfer to a serving plate, dust with powdered sugar.

Notes: This can be served with ice cream on top or whipped cream. The topping options is unlimited – the choice is yours. 😉

    1. I got a new baking dish – now it’s not a glass one and I am so excited to use it. 😀 Thanks for stopping by and so happy that you liked the pudding. Have a lovely day! 🙂

  1. Oh yes please!!! I want some of these!!! I love Nutella, this recipe looks and sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare x

  2. Yum! I’d love a slice of this! And I hate it when something in my kitchen that I love breaks. It makes me so sad, especially when it’s something I really liked.

    1. I know, Michelle. Sorry to be just responding. I am very bad at handling comments for more than two months. Now, I am trying my best to reply all of you. Thank you so much for understanding and for stopping by. Have a great week ahead. 🙂 xx

    1. Hi, Vicki. Sorry about the badge – sometimes I only use my phone to link up and it’s very small I could not put the link very easily until I get my hands on the computer. Anyway, I have added the link and your badge is always on my widget area. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and have a fab week ahead. xx

  3. I love a flaky croissant and one that is mixed with Nutella and baked is at the top of my list! My hubby loves bread pudding but sometimes it gets dry because the bread is so thick and dense. Using croissants is genious! Thanks for linking up to #SaucySaturdays! I hope you will join us next week!

    1. I haven’t tried making bread pudding using another kind of bread. I have to try it and see how it works. Thanks for stopping by, Jen. And sorry again for the late response. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂

  4. Everything is made better with Nutella. I’m a firm believer in that! lol. Thanks for sharing your recipe at the Talented Tuesday party!!

  5. So what is your secret for hiding croissants? Because that’s the only way they’d last 1 to 2 days in the house without being eaten! Thanks for linking up to #SaucySaturdays.

  6. I’m sorry to hear about the baking pan! I once brought a glass pan out from a hot oven and it completely shattered 😦 I’m glad you were able to save most of your pudding though, especially as this pudding has too many delicious things that I like way too much–nutella and croissants and cream! Happy FF Jhuls!

  7. Sorry to hear about your baking pan Jhuls, though at least you had a very yummy dessert to eat! 🙂 I guess there’ll be other baking pans… though they won’t be the same. Hope you had a lovely weekend anyway! 🙂

  8. OH NO!!!! That would have been devastating!! I start crying when I break plates at home too… I keep thinking that the set is no longer a set… or how much I’ve made things in it and it breaks my heart…
    At least… this pan “broke” valiantly in the quest for something truly delicious! 🙂 I love croissant bread pudding but I’ve NEVER used Nutella in it! Such an AWESOME idea…. definitely going to do that next time (provided I don’t finish the bottle before!) hahaha!

    1. It is indeed crazy to break or lose one of your toys. 😦

      Do you know that it is really hard to resist Nutella and I just forced myself to wait a little longer? 😀 Glad that my waiting is worthy. xx

  9. I am so sorry for your dear pan friend 😰 But it did its job till its last breath. And a real delicious job at that!! Love the croissant idea. Yummy way to use them up 👍

  10. Wow Jhuls!! What a treat you’ve brought us all for FF #74. Welcome my friend, take a seat and I’ll take the dish away from you and keep it in a safe place – there will be quite a few milling around that dessert I can tell you :). I will just have to make it myself and know how grand it will taste. Thanks for bringing this dessert along, and have yourself a wonderful, relaxed weekend.

    1. Thanks a lot, Loretta. I can see eyes all over this dessert. Please make sure everybody gets their share. But don’t worry, I am hiding another batch somewhere. 😀 Thanks for co-hosting this week. Have fun! Happy FF! xx

  11. Now Jhuls, I am a recent Nutella convert and this sounds just amazing. I am glad you didn’t say i had to make my own croissants because I would have just had to put on an unhappy face. I love everything about this dish except for the pan incident! Perfect time to fall in love with a new one. Beautiful recipe!

    1. No matter how I want to make my own croissants, I still don’t have enough time and courage. Maybe one day. 🙂 I hope you’d try this, Julie. And let me know. 😉 Have a wonderful week. xx

  12. Oh…so sorry about the pan, Jhuls! But at least you were able to save some of the pudding. Which looks and sounds amazing! And a great way to use up day-old croissants. I’m saving and pinning this !

    1. I know, Angie. I am thinking of getting a new pan (but I hope my friend reads this so she could get me a new one) haha! Thanks for sharing. I can’t keep up with pinning and Facebook-ing these days. 😦

  13. Can you believe that I haven’t everrrrrrrrr tried Nutella?!!? Is that crazy or what?! So I was passing by it in the store the other day, and ALMOST reached for it and thought…. “Nope, Steph… nope. When you fit into your jeans without feeling like you’re going to pass out all day, THEN we’ll revisit this issue.” … hahaha!!!! So if that day ever does come, I’m coming straight for this recipe! 🙂

    1. Well, in that case, I sincerely wish that you’ll fit into your jeans because there are so many beyond amazing things you could do with Nutella. And yes, I think it’s crazy! 😛 I missed you, Steph! xx

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts...
