Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place the rhubarb, caster sugar and orange juice in a small saucepan over medium heat and cover and bring to the boil and then reduce heat to low and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until rhubarb is just tender and set aside to cool slightly.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced.

Step 3

Grease a 1.25 litre (5 cup) baking dish with melted butter.

Step 4

Spread croissants with jam and place, slightly overlapping, in the dish and scatter rhubarb and any pan juices over croissants.

Step 5

Whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla and extra sugar in a bowl until combined and pour the mixture over croissants and set aside for 10 minutes to allow the milk mixture to absorb slightly.

Step 6

Place baking dish in a large roasting pan and pour in enough boiling water to come halfway up the side of the baking dish and bake for 50-55 minutes or until the pudding has just set.

Step 7

Serve warm with double cream.

Very good pudding! I chose to make this pudding as it reminded me of my father who both grew rhubarb (we always had lots and lots during the season) and bread pudding. The change I made was using orange marmalade instead of the jam but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!
