Biscuit and Jam Bread Pudding

This is SO good--I don't even like bread pudding, but I had to stop myself from gobbling this all up in one go. To make this I used the super flaky biscuits I had leftover, plus the homemade jam that was my first attempt at Pate de Fruits. The biscuits and jam and the crunchy sugar on top were so perfect together.

I based this recipe on Ina Garten's Croissant French Toast. I made a half recipe, and I used less eggs--less custard in general. I put down a layer of biscuits, a layer of jam, and then another layer of biscuits. I let the custard soak into the pudding for a few hours (in the fridge), and then right before baking a sprinkled raw sugar on top. I didn't use a water bath, but instead baked the pudding on a heavy baking sheet.

This was such a comfort food type dessert--a combination of a warm custardy pudding and a strawberry pie. Really, really good.


  1. Look delicious...like the perfect thing to make with homemade biscuits and homemade jam! Peace, Stephanie

  2. It sounds great with the buttery biscuits and not too much custard! I like bread pudding, but I'm the only one, so it's not something I usually make.
