Blueberry Bramble Bake Recipe

Not very long ago, I received a delicious Blueberry Bramble Bake Recipe from a friend.  While it pairs wonderfully with a big home-cooked breakfast or brunch, it would truly work for any time of day!  As we like having breakfast for lunch and supper sometimes too.  It’s so refreshing and delicious.  And since it has fresh blueberries, I like to consider it a little healthy too!

 

While I do enjoy baking and cooking for my family, I’m a HUGE fan of simple recipes that end up tasting like I spent a lot of time on it.  So I LOVE that I can put this recipe together fast and use very few dishes in the process.  The food processor attachment on my Ninja IntelliSense Kitchen System is once again my best friend, although not required for this recipe.

Baked Blueberry Bramble

Blueberry Bramble Bake Recipe

Ingredients

  • 6 Large Croissants
  • 1 Pint Fresh Blueberries
  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 1 1/3 Cups Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 3 Teaspoons Vanilla
  • 1 Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Powdered Sugar (optional)

1. Prepare Pan And Cut Croissants

Take a 9×13 pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray.  Then cut up six large croissants into bite-sized pieces and layer in the pan.

I’m showing you a whole croissant as well because when a group of moms were first talking about it, several got confused and automatically thought “crescent rolls” instead.

2.  Time For The Blueberries

Simply sprinkle evenly over the top of the cut up croissants.

3.  Combine Remaining Ingredients (In Food Processor If You Have One)

This is the fun part where you place pretty much everything (except the blueberries and croissants) into your food processor and simply push a button.  Whip or beat for about 5 minutes until nice and creamy.  Of course, if you don’t have a food processor, you could beat with a hand mixer or stir (really well) by hand.

4.  Pour

Once combined well, pour evenly over your blueberries and croissants.

5.  Time To Marinate

Let your Blueberry Bramble Bake stand for 20 to 30 minutes so the cream mixture can soak in.

6.  Bake

While every oven is different, baking time is about 45 minutes.  I usually set my timer for 35 minutes and just keep watching for it to be golden brown and set.   If you find that the edges are getting overdone but the center doesn’t look set yet, you can cover it with aluminum foil to prevent burning.

7.  Sprinkle And Enjoy!

Once out of the oven, let it sit for about 10 minutes.  Then, you can sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve!

I absolutely love this recipe! I baked it for my D-group and they can’t get enough of it! Although this recipe is delicious, I did change it up a bit when I made mine. I added vanilla brioche from the bakery aisle at my grocery store with the croissants and also made a blueberry sauce by cooking the blueberries with some butter, sugar, and cinnamon. It is out of this world delicious! Thank you so much!!

Can you make this a day before, put in fridge and cook next morning ?

I've always just baked the day of and either served cold or tossed back in the oven (covered with tin foil) to warm before serving. If you try to mix it up the day before and bake the next morning, please let us know how it turns out!

This. Is. Amazing. Wow! It was light, airy, fluffy, sweet and bursting with blueberry flavor. I prepped it overnight and kept it in the fridge. In the morning I took the pan out of the fridge while the oven heated up. Super easy! I’ll definitely be making it again.

@Christi, So, you let it doak up overnight and it still baked up nice and full next morning!? This would be a huge help since it must set so long before baking and bakes so long. Thanks!

I make this for camp all the time. Everyone loves this! And so easy and quick especially when prepping in a small trailer kitchen. I always make the night before and have tried it with both blueberries and peaches. Soooo yummy!
