  • 6 large croissants (leftover stale croissants work well)
  • 500g ready-made custard
  • 250ml whole milk
  • 150g lemon curd
  • 250g fresh or frozen blueberries
  • icing sugar, to serve (optional)


  1. Cut each of the croissants in half, then arrange them roughly, overlapping them slightly, in a deep medium baking dish about 20 x 20cm.

  2. Pour the custard into a small saucepan and whisk in the milk. Warm over a low heat for 3 mins or until just starting to steam. Whisk through half the lemon curd. Pour the custard over and around the croissants, then set aside for 30 mins-1 hr for the croissants to absorb some of the custard.

  3. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas 4. Nestle the blueberries around the croissants and dollop over teaspoons of the remaining lemon curd. Bake for 35-40 mins or until the top is golden brown. Rest for 10 mins before dusting with icing sugar, if you like.

Made this for dinner with friends last night. It was so simple, and very delicious! I didn't use stale croissants, I used fresh, and it still came out well. I made it earlier that day and reheated in the oven. Such nice, homely heartwarming food and the lemon blended so well with the custard! Will definitely make again.
