  • Caster sugar - 1/3 cup
  • Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  • Eggs - 4
  • Zest - 2 oranges

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C and grease a shallow 2 litre (8 cup) ovenproof dish.

  2. Combine the cream, milk, sugar and vanilla in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and heat until the mixture almost reaches the boil. Remove from the heat.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, then while you continue to whisk, pour in the cream mixture in a thin, steady stream. Add the orange zest, cinnamon and chilli powder along with a pinch of salt. Set aside to cool.

  4. Once cool, dip the croissant slices into the custard mixture then arrange in a layer over the bottom of the dish, scatter over half of the chocolate and repeat with the remaining croissant slices.

  5. Pour over remaining custard mixture and top with the rest of the chocolate and almonds. Place in the oven to bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove once set and golden brown and sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
