With our #newmealoftheweek series, we have challenged ourselves to try and create a new dish in the kitchen each week to expand our foodie horizons with plenty of delicious recipes.

Okay, I’ve got to be honest. This is definitely a cheat meal and probably not something many people would consider ‘cooking’. But hey, nowhere in the rules did it say the new meal of the week can’t be a throw-together one. If anything, I’m just looking out for all you busy bees out there, who are after some quick and easy recipes which are zero-fuss and perfect for pleasing a crowd – and so, we have the ‘Lemon Custard and Croissant Pudding’ and my god, it is delicious!


  • 8 small croissants or the equivalent
  • Custard powder
  • Milk
  • Lemon curd
  • Frozen blueberries
  • 2 or 3 peaches


Step 1) Half your croissants and fill the space of your baking dish, only overlap if you have to and make sure they are evenly distributed.

Step 2) Make up some custard using the powder, milk and two big dollops of lemon curd and create a smooth texture. It should be approximately 500ml but no harm if it’s a little more.

Step 3) Then evenly cover your croissants and let the whole dish sit for an hour. This is so the croissants can absorb the custard and the lemon flavour.

Step 4) Slice up two or three peaces and layer them on the top of your dish, evenly spread. Then scatter lots of frozen blueberries and again, try it to make it as even as possible.

Step 5) Next, add some extra dollops of lemon curd on top aligning with where you would cut each piece. Then place the dish in the oven at 180C or gas mark 4 to cook for 45 minutes. You may need longer but basically until the top catches some colour.

For the final touch, you can sprinkle some sugar or icing sugar on top but honestly, I forgot too! And that’s it, dish up and dig in!
