You do, TA, and thanks for that.

When entertaining, it's nice to have some new recipes 'up your sleeve', ay?

Cheers TA, those pod fritters look a good idea; and the risotto sounds tasty, too.

Ok

Every morning, one of our guests went out for the fresh croissants and pains-au-chocolat. Inevitably some days they weren't all eaten. Never being one who throws away good food, daughter had a search on the internet and found this.

Caramel croissant pudding. What an amazing find. Fabulous.

It doesn't say so in the article, but looking at the web address, I guess it is a Nigella Lawson dish - and I should have known that as she ends the piece with:

"Place in the oven for 20 minutes and prepare to swoon."

I have just made it for the second time - ha ha, but this time there is only us two to eat it. i_am_hungry

It's a 'must-try'.

Danny, I suspect that Lorne is not too far away from me...

BS, I'm not much of a one for sweet things but bread and butter pudding would do it and that recipe definitely would! 

I'll try that again!

Just had a look at Lorne's web, he's about 19 miles away from here.  Small world...

I'll try that again!

Ooh that caramel croissant pudding looks YUMMY and since it has the "BS must try" stamp of approval, well it simply MUST be tried. Alas no double cream or equivalent out here steam but maybe the next time I'm home...

Life is uncertain ………… eat dessert first!

Suz, can you get cream in tins, or long-life boxes? I used long-life cream, but as long as it is 'whole' cream (same for the milk - not semi-skimmed). When you live in a place where it can get hot, it's probably the best way of keeping it.

This is the better site - actually Nigella's recipe - with picture!

Good luck!brightsparklystuff

I'll try that again!
