Classics never fail, and this beauty, with oozing white chocolate, is dessert at its best. All-butter croissants are used instead of bread for an indulgent take on this old fashioned pudding.

500 ml double cream, plus extra to serve

2 vanilla pods, de-seeded

300 g white chocolate, broken into chunks

8 large croissants

25 g sultanas

3 tbsp bourbon whiskey, plus extra for soaking

6 eggs

6 egg yolks

25 g butter

50 g caster sugar

vanilla ice cream, to serve

2 tbsp icing sugar

Preheat the oven 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Warm the milk and cream with the seeds from the vanilla pod. Remove from the heat and stir in the white chocolate to melt it.
