Method

  1. Butter each piece of bread on both sides, then spread 4 with the 1 tbsp marmalade each. Pop the remaining bread on top to make 4 marmalade sandwiches. Cut into triangles and nestle in rows in a large baking dish. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3.
  2. Beat the milk, cream, eggs, vanilla, sugar and whisky together, then pour over the bread. Leave to soak for 30 mins.
  3. Dot the remaining marmalade all over the top of the pud and dust with the icing sugar. Bake for 45 mins-1 hr or until puffy and starting to caramelise where the bread breaks out of the custard. Serve hot or warm.

delicious, added sultanas instead of pears, I'l add extra whisky next time as couldnt really taste it, also will use a shallow dish as was sloppy in the middle.

I used a raisin loaf with cinnamon, but followed the rest of the recipe exactly and it was brilliant. My husband, not a bread and butter pudding fan, loved it and keeps asking for more.

Have made this several times - so easy and so tasty!! change the bread to a shop bought fruit loaf, which adds some sultanas and a hint of spice and also add orange zest and a sprinkle of demerara sugar over the top to get a really nice crunchy crust. Brilliant for a dinner party as it can be prepared well in advance, and is in fact better if it gets a good soak, then put in the oven as you serve the main course.

Just love this pudding - so deliciously creamy and tasty. The only change I made was to use real vanilla essence instead of vanilla sugar. It's a yummy summer and winter treat for our family and friends.

Have made this three times - delicious flavours which aren't too overpowering - my sister isn't keen on whisk or orange marmalade but really enjoyed this.
