This surprising twist on traditional bread and butter pudding is a great warm spring dessert.

Croissant and berry pudding in large dish original

This delectable dessert is a twist on the traditional bread and butter pudding. Just combine chocolate croissants, berries and cream to make our Simple Surprise Pudding.

(serves 2)

2 medium or 1 1/2 large chocolate croissants, cut into small pieces
2 eggs
150 ml thickened light cream
6 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1/2 tablespoon icing sugar, to serve

Grease a small ovenproof dish. Place croissants in dish. Combine eggs, cream, milk and sugar in a bowl and whisk. Pour over the croissants. Cover and stand at room temperature (or in the fridge if it is a hot day) for one hour. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced), and bake until custard is set (30–40 minutes). Dust with icing sugar and serve.

If you only have access to regular croissants, throw in a handful of chocolate chips. Add a handful of frozen berries to the custard for a choc-berry flavour.

    The photo of this dessert really looks like it has blueberries on top which is one of the options but what is that that appears to be grated on the top? Can't imagine it would be cheese?

    certainly looks like cheese but could be coconut which wasn't mentioned in recipe either, and what happens if one can't get chocolate croissants

    What ever it is is baked on...perhaps a drizzle of the egg mixture....rather strange.

    Miss Marple - use plain ones - it was mentioned above :)

    Wish some chefs would come up with dairy free recipes that do not have piles of sugar in please!
