This is a yummy thing to make if you've got some croissants that have got a lil tired (or you found them in the Whoops! section at the supermarket!)  The recipe as written doesn't come out too sweet, so it's lighter and more refreshing than might be expected.  It's also fairly flexible because the custard can be made ahead of time if necessary.

Ingredients
4 normal croissants
300 mL double cream, plus enough milk to make up to 1-1/4 pints
5 large eggs
10-12 cardamom pods, slightly crushed (adjust to taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Zest of one orange
1-1/2 tablespoons caster sugar
Orange marmalade (home-made for preference, tends to be less sweet and more orange-y)
Brown sugar (for dusting)
Handful of flaked almonds
Butter for greasing

Method:
First, make a custard.  Start by gently heating the milk and cream with the cardamom pods in a heavy saucepan.  Keep an eye on it and stir regularly - no one likes burned milk all over the stove!  Meanwhile, separate the eggs (save the whites for another dish) and beat the yolks in a large bowl with the caster sugar, vanilla extract and orange zest until fluffy, pale and thickened.  When the milk and cream just reaches simmering point, remove from the heat, allow to cool for a couple of minutes and then pour into the egg yolk mixture with plenty of stirring to combine.  Transfer the custard mixture back to the pan and heat gently over a low heat to thicken - it will need frequent stirring to stop it catching on the bottom or curdling.  Once the custard has thickened, strain into a jug and set aside until needed (refrigerate if necessary).

About 1-2 hours before you want to bake it, grease a deep oven dish well and slice the croissants into angled rounds about 1/2" thick.  Spread half the rounds in the bottom of the dish and use a teaspoon to dollop blobs of marmalade over the croissants.  Be as generous as you like!  Add the rest of the rounds in a covering layer, then pour over the prepared custard and allow to soak for at least an hour or two before baking.

To bake, preheat the oven to 180oC.  Sprinkle the top of the pudding with the brown sugar and flaked almonds and bake on the lowest rung of the oven for 30 mins (check after 20 mins) until nicely browned and bubbling.

You could serve it with cream, ice cream, yoghurt, etc. if you wanted, but it tastes good all by itself too.  Smiley
