    Serves: 9 

    • 6 stale croissants, cut into small cubes (see note)
    • 165g fresh strawberries, diced
    • 120g cream cheese
    • 1/3 cup caster sugar
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 1 egg
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons icing sugar

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease 9 of the holes in a muffin tin; place tin on a baking tray in case of spillage.
    2. Divide croissant cubes evenly among greased muffin holes. Press strawberries into and on top of the bread cubes.
    3. Beat cream cheese, caster sugar, milk, egg and vanilla extract together in a large bowl until smooth. Pour slowly into holes until croissant cubes and strawberries are fully soaked.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until set and evenly browned, 30 to 40 minutes. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes. Dust with icing sugar before serving.


    If using fresh croissants, spread cubes on a lined baking tray and toast them in the preheated oven to dry them out, about 5 minutes.

    Make it, but used frozen (defrosted) strawberries since I didn't have any fresh ones - everyone loved it. It's not too sweet and the powder sugar on top makes a big difference in the taste. The leftovers (which weren't many) we toasted up in the toaster oven and then added the powder sugar were also great! Will make again, thanks for the recipe!  -  25 Apr 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Just ate these delish little cups! Hubby and I loved them! Mine didn't look quite as pretty, but after powder sugar looked good. I used all 8oz. of cream cheese by error......still wonderful. Cut back sugar to 1/4 c and 6 small croissants instead...... all worked out. Will make for brunch soon.......sure my company will love these different little treats. Adjusted sugar was perfect! So glad I tried, thanks!  -  22 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
