1 9x13-inch baking dish


Bread Pudding:

  • 2 cups milk

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 eggs

  • 4 bananas, cut into small chunks

  • 10 croissants, cut into 1-inch pieces

Rum Sauce:

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter

  • ¼ cup rum (such as Captain Morgan®)

  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream, or more to taste


  1. Whisk milk, sugar, butter, and eggs together in a large bowl. Add bananas. Add croissants and mix well.

  2. Pour mixture into a 9x13-inch baking dish. Refrigerate for 1 hour so croissants can absorb some of the liquid.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until center is set and top is golden brown, about 1 hour. Let cool for 30 minutes before slicing.

  5. Meanwhile, combine brown sugar, butter, and rum in a saucepan. Cook and stir until melted together, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream. Pour warm sauce over the bread pudding right before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can use a smaller baking pan; it depends on the size of the croissants. I make sure the dish is filled to the top to have some thickness.
