  • 6 Croissant preferably stale
  • 1 Raisins


  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Take a bowl and mix together the whole eggs, egg yolks, half-and-half, sugar, and vanilla. Set this custard mixture aside.
  • Slice the croissants in half horizontally.
  • In a 10 by 15 X 2.5-inch oval baking dish, distribute the bottoms of the sliced croissants; add in the raisins; tops of the croissants (brown side up) and make sure the raisins are between the layers of croissants. Otherwise, they will burn

  • Place the pan in a larger one filled with one-inch of hot water.
  • Cover the larger pan with aluminum foil. Make sure it does not touch the pudding.
  • Cut a few holes in the foil to allow steam to escape.
  • Bake for approximately 45 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake for another  40 to 45 more minutes or until the pudding puffs up and the custard is set.
  • Remove from the oven and cool slightly.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
