This is a croissant and butter pudding.. sorta. maybe more like a cake, or pie.. Well, whatever you call it: it is sweet, soft, warm & delicious. And made from products that were not eaten on yesterdays breakfast buffet.
Because we are all about not wasting food, this is one of the items you can find on the buffet when we have overproduced the day before.
Want to save croissants or old bread from being wasted too?
Here's our recipe!
You will need the following:
Rectangular cake tin - Coated with butter (to make the paper stick to the tin) Parchment paper - One piece to cover the entire tin, pressed in the tin.
3 Old croissants
Any jam (this time we used forest fruits)
250 ml full fat organic milk
2 organic eggs
an ugly apple
a little bit of raw cane sugar
and some cinnamon
Whisk the eggs, milk and cinnamon together.
Break the croissants in smaller chunks. (3 is good) Coat each of those pieces of croissants with the jam. (the more the better!!!!) Put the chunks in the paper lined tin.
Add the egg/milk/cinnamon mixture.
Slice the apple (not the core) and lay them on top to cover the croissants.
Sprinkle some of that sugar over the apples (yes! do it! c'mon live a little!)
Put the tin in your fridge and leave it overnight, letting the croissants absorb some of the moisture.
Put in a preheated oven at 200 C (390 F) and bake for 15 to 20 minutes (or golden brown and firm)
let it cool for a while and cut in pieces, or eat it whole.. you totally deserve it :)
