but i don’t care because this dessert was genius.
it is pear bread and butter pudding.
however, the genius (and i wish i could take credit) is that you replace the bread with almond croissants from your favorite bakery.
so really it is pear and almond croissant pudding.
because placing a slice of a pear on top of an almond croissant is already very tasty.
however, if you want to have some more fun:
whisk together a mixture of 1 egg, 4 egg whites, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and 3 tablespoons of sugar.
bring 500ml of milk and 500ml of cream together to a boil and add it to the above mix.
pour it over a casserole filled with sliced almond croissants and pears.
bake in a 180C oven for about 45 min.
