Tips and Recommendations:

  • Ensure your filo pastry sheets are fully thawed and at room temperature before using. Keep them covered with a damp cloth while working to prevent drying out. 
  •  Don't be afraid to get creative with your flavors. Consider adding lemon zest, orange zest, or a touch of almond extract to the custard for extra depth of flavor. 
  •  Leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated gently in the oven or microwave. The filo may lose some crispness upon reheating, but the flavors will still be fantastic.


1. Can I use a different type of pastry for this recipe?

While filo pastry is traditional for this recipe, you can experiment with puff pastry or phyllo dough for slightly different textures and flavors.

2. Can I make this dessert in advance for a party?

Yes, you can prepare the filo pudding in advance and refrigerate it. Warm it up in the oven before serving for a fresh-from-the-oven taste.

3. Can I use a different type of milk?

Yes, you can use skim milk or a milk substitute like almond milk or soy milk, but whole milk will give you the creamiest custard.

4. What can I serve with filo pudding?

Filo pudding is delightful on its own, but you can enhance it with a dusting of powdered sugar, a dollop of whipped cream, or a drizzle of honey for added sweetness. It's also excellent with fresh berries or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  • 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish.
  • 2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, whole milk, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, ground nutmeg, ground cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
  • 3. Place one sheet of filo pastry in the greased baking dish. Brush it with melted butter using a pastry brush.
  • 4. Sprinkle a thin layer of breadcrumbs over the buttered filo sheet. This helps to absorb excess moisture and keeps the filo crisp.
  • 5. Repeat the process, layering and buttering filo sheets and adding a sprinkle of breadcrumbs between each layer, until you have used half of the filo sheets.
  • 6. Pour the custard filling over the layered filo sheets.
  • 7. Continue layering the remaining filo sheets, brushing with melted butter and adding breadcrumbs between each layer.
  • 8. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the filo pudding is golden brown and the custard is set.
  • 9. Once done, remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing.
