Method

 

Preheat the oven to 160ºC.

Slice croissants lengthwise into 1cm-wide slices. Spread one side with orange marmalade. Arrange slices in a buttered ovenproof dish. Whisk together cream, milk, eggs, sugar and zest in a jug and pour over croissants. Set dish aside for 30 minutes.

For the butterscotch sauce:
Heat butter, sugar, golden syrup and juice in a pot over low heat stir until sugar has melted. Increase heat; cook for 5–8 min until almost caramel. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Pour half of sauce over the pudding and bake for 1 hour or until set.

To serve:

Serve pudding warm with the extra sauce on the side.

Tip of the day

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
