Christmas: Mince Pie Croissant Pudding

Prep: 20 minutes Serves: 8

Think mince pies crossed with a bread and butter pudding, but with croissants! A light but festive dessert everyone will love.


1 pack of St Pierre Croissants (8-pack), cut in half
1 tsp butter, to grease the dish(es)
200g mincemeat
500ml ready-made custard
150ml whole milk

To decorate:

Icing sugar, to dust
Zest of 1 orange


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C fan / Gas Mark 4.
  2. Depending on what dishes you have at home, either grease one large ovenproof dish or two smaller dishes with the butter.
  3. Slice the 8 St Pierre Croissants in half lengthways and spread the insides of the croissants liberally with mincemeat. Set a small amount of mincemeat to one side.
  4. Arrange the bottom halves of the croissants in the ovenproof dish or dishes.
  5. Mix the milk with the ready-made custard and pour half of the mixture over the croissants in the dish. Add the tops of the croissants to the dish and dot a small amount of the leftover mincemeat over the top of the dish.
  6. Pour over the rest of the custard mixture over the top of the dish and zest the orange over the top.
  7. Cover the dish loosely with foil and place on a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 25-35 minutes, depending on the size of the dish or until the dish is just set.
  8. Remove from the oven and dust with icing sugar and serve.
