Recipe by Irmgard
This recipe from BBC Good Food is absolutely yummy. It's a great way to use up leftover slices of bread and in my case, a small amount of marmalade taking up space in the fridge.
- 8 slices day-old white bread, crusts removed
- 50 g butter, very soft
- 4 tablespoons orange marmalade, plus 4 additional teaspoons
- 300 ml milk
- 248 ml double cream
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 tablespoons golden caster sugar
- 1 tablespoon whiskey
- icing sugar, for garnish
Directions See How It's Made
- Butter each piece of bread on both sides, the spread four with one tablespoon of marmalade each.
- Pop the remaining bread on top to made 4 marmalade sandwiches.
- Cut into triangles and nestle in rows in a large baking dish.
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Beat the milk, cream, eggs, vanilla, sugar and whiskey together, then pour over the bread.
- Leave to soak for 30 minutes.
- Dot the remaining marmalade all over the top of the pudding and dust with the icing sugar.
- Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until puffy and starting to caramelize when the bread breaks out of the custard.
- Serve hot or warm.
