  • 2½ cups milk
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar

  • ½ tsp ground ginger

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Generously butter a 9” x 13” or 8” round baking dish. Cut croissants into 1” cubes and place them inside the dish. Scatter the pears over the top, tucking the pieces around the bread.

  • 4
    Remove the plastic wrap and bake the bread pudding for 50–60 minutes or until the centre has set and the edges of the bread are golden brown and caramelized.
