  • Prep Time5 min

  • Total Time35 min
  • Yield7 mini ramekins
  • Serving Size1 mini ramekins


    • 3 cups croissants, roughly torn
    • 250 ml sweetened condensed milk
    • 2 cups milk
    • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    • 3 smashed cardamom pods
    • Handful of each to taste, or about a ¼ cup, California raisins, chopped pistachios and sliced almonds


    • Bake croissants at 350°F for 15 mins then set aside.
    • In a saucepan, heat milk, condensed milk, cinnamon, and smashed cardamom pods and bring to a light boil then strain liquid.
    • To each ramekin, add toasted croissants, pistachios, sliced almonds, California raisins, and top with milk mixture. Do not fill the ramekin to the rim otherwise it will overflow during baking. Instead, pour the liquid about ¾ of the way.
    • Let this sit for 5 mins to allow croissants to soak up the milk.
    • Place ramekins on a baking tray and bake in the oven for 20 mins at 350°F.
    • Serve hot or let cool at room temperature and serve.
