Prep Time 10 minutes
Course Breakfast, Dessert
Servings 6


*For the Almond Filling:*

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups almond meal or almond flour/ground almonds
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla or almond extract
  • 6 large croissants stale or day-old if possible

*For the Almond Topping:*

  • 8 tablespoons sliced almonds

*For the Custard:*

  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Start by making the almond filling. In a bowl, mix together unsalted butter, granulated sugar, almond meal, 2 large eggs, and vanilla or almond extract until well combined. Set aside.
  • Slice the croissants in half horizontally.
  • Generously spread the prepared almond filling on the sliced sides of the croissants.
  • Place the filled croissants, filling side up, into a buttered baking dish.
  • Sprinkle sliced almonds over the top of the filled croissants.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the custard ingredients: 1 cup milk, 3 eggs, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1 tsp salt until well combined.
  • Pour the custard mixture evenly over the filled croissants in the baking dish, ensuring all the croissants are soaked in the custard.
  • Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  • Bake the covered croissant French toast in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 5-10 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the custard is set. Keep an eye on it to prevent over-browning.
  • Once done, take the croissant French toast out of the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Serve warm, and if desired, top with additional sliced almonds or powdered sugar. Enjoy your delightful Almond Croissant French Toast!
