Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160 fan/gas 4. Tear the croissants into chunks and place in a 22cm round pie dish. Sprinkle over the orange blossom water and rose water, and scatter over the raisins. In a small pan, bring the cream and milk to the boil. Tip this over the chocolate chunks in a bowl and leave to stand for 1 min.

  2. Meanwhile, whisk together the eggs, sugar and lemon zest. Stir the milk and cream to dissolve the chocolate, then gradually pour over the egg mixture while whisking. Pour over the croissants to soak them completely. Cover with cling film and leave to soak for at least 30 mins. Bake for 40-45 mins until golden, puffed up and the custard has set. Lightly dust with icing sugar and serve while still warm.

I reduced the sugar to 100g, instead of 175g and it was still lovely and sweet.

A really inventive new take on traditional bread and butter pudding - I loved this! It took no time at all to prepare and was so light and fluffy. The rose and orange blossom water, combined with the lemon zest gave it a hint of fresh, floral fragrance that was delightful. I will definitely make again - my new dinner party dessert.

I made this for a dinner party - my mum found the recipe in the Good Food magazine. It is really rich but delicious.
