A rich and satisfying pudding which combines the delicious flavours of dark chocolate and orange with croissants and cream for a taste sensation.
4-5 plain Croissants, torn into pieces
100g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
4 free-range eggs
1/3 cup (90g) castor sugar
1 cup (250ml) milk
1 cup (250ml) cream
1 tsp grated orange rind
1/3 cup (80ml) orange juice
2 tbsp coarsely chopped hazelnuts
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Grease and line a 20cm loose-bottom cake tin.
Layer the croissant pieces into the baking tin. Scatter chocolate pieces evenly amongst the pieces.
Beat eggs and sugar until pale & creamy with an electric beater.
Heat the milk and cream on the stove until almost boiling and remove from heat.
Gradually pour the cream and milk mixture over the egg mixture, stirring all the time.
Add orange juice and rind and stir well.
Slowly pour this over the croissants, allowing the liquid to be absorbed before adding more.
Sprinkle hazelnuts over the top and bake for 45- 50 minutes (until a skewer comes out clean when inserted).
Allow to cool for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge and using a spatula lift the pudding onto a plate.
Serve with custard or ice-cream.

Retailers of a certain age will be able to cast their minds back to the 1990s when they didn’t need to look much further than the trusted combo of a ‘POS’ and supply chain management tool. A lot has changed in the decades that have passed since an ever-increasing amount of functions are running in the back end, so a typical retailer now uses a multitude of systems, including marketing systems, communications, RFID, ECMS, ESS, IMS, ICMS, DSS, WMS and many others. There’s been talk of Big Data across multiple business sectors in recent years, and retail is clearly an area where vast amounts of it have been created.
