I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been a huge breakfast food fan.  Although, I don’t generally like to actually cook breakfast in the mornings.  That sounds weird, right?  Mornings for me are basically a trudge to the kitchen where I tiredly heat up some water for my hot Chai tea, and I’m not all that functional until about 30 minutes after that when the caffeine kicks in.  Definitely not when I want to be hanging out with sharp knives and hot stove tops!

That’s why I LOVE breakfasts like this Fruity Croissant Puff… not only do they look fantastic, but they are actually made up the night before and sit overnight in the refrigerator.  Then all you have to do in the morning is preheat the oven and bake it.  Breakfast is done!!

For this croissant puff, I chose a colorful and flavorful mix of blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, but feel free to choose whichever berries you love the most!

I think this fruity croissant puff tastes a bit like a deconstructed cream cheese Danish, with the bright fresh flavor of the berries mixed in.  Then comes the glaze.  Ohhhh this glaze!

I have to tell you all, this glaze was so hard to resist as I was taking these pictures.  There were several instances where I was sneaking my fork into the pan in the background and taking bites mid-shoot.  I couldn’t’ help myself!

This fruity croissant puff would be perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch with family, or even for a special occasion!  I hope you give it a try soon!

Calories: 509 kcal
Author: The Chunky Chef
Ingredients
  • 4 large croissants sliced into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed berries (I used raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries)
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup milk (whole or 2%)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
Vanilla Bean Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbsp heavy cream (or half and half and milk)
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract if you don't have the paste)
Instructions
  1. Grease an 8x8" baking dish, fill with sliced croissants and mixed berries. Set aside.

  2. Add cream cheese to mixing bowl and beat with hand mixer until smooth. Add milk, sugar, eggs, vanilla and lemon zest and beat until combined.

  3. Pour mixture over croissants and berries.

  4. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

  5. Remove baking dish from refrigerator and let sit on the counter. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  6. Bake, covered with aluminum foil, for 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake uncovered for 15 minutes, until golden and when a knife inserted in center comes out clean.

  7. While casserole is baking, add powdered sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla bean paste to a small mixing bowl and whisk to combine until smooth and pourable.

  8. Drizzle glaze over croissant puff after it's finished baking. Serve warm.

Recipe Notes

You can bake this dish the same day you make it, if needed. Just be sure to let the croissant puff sit for 10-20 minutes or so before baking so the croissants can soak up some of the liquid.

  1. Could I make it in a 9×13?  If so, how many eggs and milk would it take?

    • Hi Kim 🙂 You can; and I would use the following: 6 croissants, 2 cups berries, 12 oz cream cheese, 1 1/2 cups milk, 3/4 cup sugar, 3 eggs, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 tsp lemon zest. You may want to double all the ingredients in the glaze, and it may take a bit longer to bake.

  2. How many will this feed?

  3. My boys are huge croissant fans and this dish would definitely be met with “oo”s and “aah”s!

  4. I love all those berries!! I need to make this very soon!

  5. Such an incredible breakfast treat!! Can’t wait to try it!!

  6. Ohhh croissants and berries! Beautiful photos too.

  7. Man.. This looks amazing! You had my attention at croissants but the berries and ease of the recipe are perfect!

  8. I need several cups of caffeine before I even attempt to cook, so this is the perfect breakfast for me!

  9. Pinning! This is the answer to baseball Saturdays. My boys’ games are so early so having something ready to pop in the oven would be fantastic!
