Foodies are raving about a mother’s Nutella croissant pudding made from six simple ingredients in a slow cooker.
Photos of the decadent dessert were posted anonymously in an Australian cookery group on Facebook, with dozens branding it ‘delicious’ and the most ‘creative’ dish they’ve seen online in weeks.
The recipe requires four or six ready-made croissants, a jar of the iconic chocolate hazelnut spread, four eggs, two cups of milk, two teaspoons of brown sugar and a dash of vanilla extract.
The croissants should be sliced in half and spread with Nutella on either side, then placed in a single layer at the bottom of a slow cooker.

Slow cookers are available from Kmart for $19, in-store and online.
Nutella-inspired desserts have been popular on social media since lockdown began in March
To make the soft pudding filling, lightly beat four eggs and whisk in two cups of milk, two teaspoons of brown sugar and a dash of vanilla extract, then pour the mixture over the croissants.
The dish should be cooked on a low heat for two hours with a tea towel under the lid to soak up condensation.
The recipe recommends serving the pudding with vanilla ice cream for extra sweetness.
Members of the cookery group said the quirky dessert had inspired them to start baking again.
‘Now I want to cook tomorrow,’ one woman said.
Another said seeing the dessert ‘is worth being part of this page alone’.
It’s the latest Nutella-inspired dessert to go viral on social media, following Perth chef Rob Nixon’s remarkably simple Nutella cake which is made from just two ingredients: eggs and the iconic chocolate hazelnut spread.
Mr Nixon is the brains behind Nicko’s Kitchen, an online cookery show broadcast on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok which specialises in homemade versions of iconic fast food dishes.
During isolation in April he showed viewers how to make an indulgent chocolate cake by rapidly beating the eggs for eight minutes, folding in 240 grams of softened hazelnut spread and baking the mixture at 180 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes.
Mr Nixon amassed tens of thousands of new housebound followers after Australia went into stage two lockdown on March 23 to slow the spread of coronavirus.

1. Preheat oven to 180 °C.
2. Take Nutella out of the pantry and leave to soften for at least half an hour.
3. Crack eight small eggs into a bowl and beat with an electric mixer on high. The mixture should triple in volume and become soft and fluffy.
4. While eggs are beaten, scoop 240g Nutella into a jug.
5. Slowly add Nutella to the egg mixture, gradually beating on a slower speed.
6. Slowly pour batter into a cake tin and bake in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes.
