Delicious 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! 

Since 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.

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)

Directions

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!

Make It Ahead of Time

This past Christmas I decided I would try prepping this dish on Christmas Eve but waiting to bake in the morning. I followed all of the steps as usual and stopped just at the part where you bake it in the oven.

I put it in our refrigerator overnight and then Christmas morning I just popped it into the oven so it could bake while my kids opened presents.

That worked perfectly! It was a wonderful Christmas-morning dish without a bit of hassle on our already busy day.

If you’re looking for some more yummy breakfast recipes, I love whipping up my Baked French Toast, scrambled eggs, and bacon to go along with our Blueberry Bramble Bake.

Another great option that kids love would be Swiss Miss Pancakes! An easy side to add to your breakfast or brunch are these moist and delicious Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.

And finally, an easy but crowd-pleasing Yogurt Fruit Salad is the perfect way to round off our big meal.

Does your family enjoy having a big breakfast?  What are the go-to dishes that you make for it?

Can I prepare it all the night before and let it soak overnight before baking in the morning? Or will that make it too mushy?

I've done it the night before and it's turned out fine. Just plan to add extra baking time since the dish will be chilled entirely through.

I've made this dish a number of times and it has become my favorite go-to breakfast/brunch casserole. It's so easy to put together and so delicious - every single time. I'm never disappointed! Prepping it tonight so it's ready to pop in the oven when we get up tomorrow morning! Can't wait! Thank you for sharing such a great recipe!

Do you think you can use fresh cranberries

Miranda

I would sure think so! We have a really popular fresh cranberry recipe on the blog too so I would think this bramble could swap out the berry! https://thriftyniftymommy.com/frosted-cranberry-orange-bread-recipe/
