Ingredients

Croissants & Cream
6 Bakers Delight Croissants
¼ cup (80g) raspberry jam
600ml thickened cream
2 tbs chopped pistachios

Custard
3 cups (750ml) milk
3 cup (750ml) thickened cream
2 tbs rum or orange juice
2 cinnamon sticks or quills, broken
1 tsp cloves
10 egg yolks
1 cup (220g) caster sugar
¼ cup 35g) cornflour
60g butter
2 tsp vanilla bean paste

Vanilla Peaches
6 peaches, stoned, cut into wedges
1½ cups (330g) caster sugar
1 vanilla bean pod, split, seeds scraped

Method

STEP 1

To make the custard, place the milk, cream, rum or orange juice, cinnamon and cloves in a medium heavy-based saucepan. Stirring occasionally, bring to a simmer over medium heat. Strain through a fine sieve into a large heatproof jug, discarding the solids

STEP 2

Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks and sugar in a large heatproof bowl for 3 mins or until very pale and light. Whisk the corn flour into the egg mixture, then gradually whisk in the hot milk mixture

STEP 3

Return the mixture to a clean saucepan. Cook, whisking constantly, over medium heat for 8 mins or until the custard boils and thickens. Remove from heat and whisk in the butter and vanilla. Strain the custard through a fine sieve into a shallow container. Discard the solids. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing directly onto the surface of the custard. Place in the fridge for 2 hours or until cold and thickened

STEP 4

To make the vanilla peaches, place the peach, sugar, vanilla seeds and pod and 1 cup (250ml) water in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Reduce heat to low. Partially cover and cook for 10 mins or until the peach is just tender. Transfer the mixture to a heatproof bowl. Place in the fridge for 2 hours to chill. Strain the peaches, reserving ½ cup (125ml) of the syrup

STEP 5

Split the croissants horizontally and spread with jam, then cut in half crossway

STEP 6

Split the croissants horizontally and spread with jam, then cut in half crossway

STEP 7

Place one-third of the croissants in a 20-cup (5L) glass serving dish and drizzle with one-third of the reserved syrup. Top with one-third of the custard, one-quarter of the vanilla peaches and one-third of the whipped cream. Repeat layering with the remaining croissants, syrup, custard and whipped cream, finishing with peaches. Sprinkle with pistachio to serve
