This pudding is very rich so best served in small helpings! Equally as delicious cold.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 284 ml double cream
  • 300 ml milk
  • 200 g good quality dark chocolate, chopped
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 100 g soft brown sugar
  • 75 g dried fruit (optional) or 75 g nuts (optional)
  • 225 g croissants, sliced into 2cm thick slices

  2. Grease a 20cm x 30cm oven-proof dish and scatter with the dried fruit / nuts (if being used).

  4. In a bowl, beat together the egg yolks and sugar until smooth. Stir into the cooled chocolate-cream mixture. Stir until smooth.
  5. Dip the croissant slices into the chocolate sauce and then layer them in the oven-proof dish, overlapping the slices as you go.
  6. Place the dish into a roasting pan and fill the roasting pan to 2/3 full with boiling water.
  7. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
  8. Whip the 125ml cream and use to serve with the pudding.
