  • 500ml Milk
  • 3 tbsp Whisky
  • 500ml Double Cream 55g Apricot jam
  • 1 Vanilla pod Icing sugar
  • 3 Whole eggs Vanilla ice cream
  • 5 Egg yolks
  • 200g Caster sugar
  • 4 Large croissants
  • 25g Sultanas
  • 25g Butter, melted
  • 175g White chocolate, grated


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C. Pour the milk and cream into a pan, add the vanilla pod and gradually bring to the boil.
  2. Place the eggs, egg yolks and sugar together in the mixing bowl and using the James Martin by Wahl Hand Blender whisk gently on a low setting.
  3. While the cream is heating, slice the croissants and place in an ovenproof dish, slightly overlapping the pieces. Sprinkle with sultanas and pour over the butter.
  4. Once the cream has boiled, take it off the heat. Add the egg mixture and chocolate and stir well. Set on one side to allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add the whisky to the cream mixture.
  6. Using a sieve, strain the cream over the croissants, cover with foil and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until almost set.
  7. Remove from the oven, coat the top with the jam, and dust with icing sugar.
  8. Caramelise the topping using a very hot grill or, if you have one, a blow-torch. This is best served at room temperature, with a spoonful of good quality ice cream.
