Golden Syrup & Clotted Cream Croissant Pudding

Golden Syrup & Clotted Cream Croissant Pudding - Fab Food 4 AllSo it’s January and the trend is that everyone tries to eat healthier after the indulgence of Christmas! Well I’ve never been very good at trends and with this cold snap we’re having at the moment I do think a comforting pud is just what’s needed right now! With all my bargain shopping I sometimes have to make room in my freezer by taking out something bulky to make room. Recently I took out a bag of 8 croissants and after eating the first 4 with jam we were left with another 4. I’d always wanted to make a bread and butter pudding type of dessert with croissants so after a rummage in my cupboards and fridge I came up with this Golden Syrup & Clotted Cream Croissant Pudding!

Golden Syrup & Clotted Cream Croissant Pudding - Fab Food 4 AllMy family were head over heels with praise for my pudding and I have to say it was pure pleasure especially served with an extra spoonful of clotted cream!

    1. Camilla

  3. becky

    Love this! I often see stale croissants heavily reduced at my local Tesco at the end of the day, this would be a great thing to do with them. Do you think it would freeze well?

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Becky:-) I found this useful article which you might find helpful about freezing: http://www.goodtoknow.co.uk/recipes/pictures/34832/things-you-can-make-in-bulk-and-freeze/13

    That is just wonderful Camilla, and probably worth buying croissants for and letting them go stale. A perfect winter indulgent pud!

  24. Lois

    Is clotted cream sold in the states?

    1. Camilla

      Well the lovely Christina Conte of Christina’s Cucina shared this post on her facebook page (US based) and there were Americans on there saying where they could get hold of it. But if you can’t get any you could just use any heavy cream, plus I understand semi-skimmed milk is not a term in the states, but any milk will do either 1 – 2 % fat or wholemilk even:-)

  25. wendy malone

    what a delightfull pudding.my hubby would love this.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Wendy:-)

  26. Katie Bryson

    This looks heavenly Camilla, and just the kind of pudding that my eldest son would go crazy for, as he’s earned the title Pudding King from his love of desserts!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Katie, what a great title to have:-)

  27. Choclette

    Golden syrup and clotted cream in the same sentence has me at near swooning point – what a fab recipe Camilla.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Kerry, it’s great to use up leftovers in a yummy way:-)

  30. Helen @ family-friends-food.com

    This has to be in the running for most indulgent pudding ever! It looks amazing. There’s never likely to be ‘spare’ croissants round here though, so I might have to get some specially 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Helen, we just happened to have them as I’d bought a bargain pack of 8 which I’d thawed:-)

  31. Lucy @ BakingQueen74

    1. Camilla

      Fab, I’d love to know how they compare then, this was my 1st ever croissant pudding and I’m hooked:-)
