French Toast Bake
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C (fan-forced). Grease a 6 ½-cup capacity oval ceramic baking dish
  2. Split croissants through the centre, making sure you don’t cut all the way through. Place Ricotta in a small bowl, add jam and swirl gently to just combine. Spoon ricotta mixture evenly into croissants. Arrange in base of prepared pan
  3. Whisk cream, eggs, paste and sugar in a bowl. Pour over croissants and scatter with half the raspberries
  4. Place baking dish into large roasting pan and pour enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of baking dish. Bake for 35 minutes, remove paper and foil and bake for a further 15 minutes or until custard is set (there will be a slight wobble, but this will thicken on standing), Cover with foil if overbrowning. Sit for 15 minutes, before serving
  5. Dust with icing sugar. Serve with extra raspberries and the Vanilla Ricotta Cream
Tips & Hints:
  • A great way to use up leftover croissants. If using regular sized croissants, use 5 croissants and divide filling accordingly between them.
  • Replace raspberries with blueberries or blackberries.
  • Beat 2 teaspoons lemon zest into vanilla ricotta cream.
