This was scrumptious. Didnt taste of whisky. Didnt taste of marmalade. Left overs are in the fridge calling me!!

I gave this recipe a try as I had a few slices of Italian bread, as well as some cream and marmalade, that I wanted to use up. It baked up beautifully and tasted even better than it looked. I will definitely make this pudding again as it's a great way to use up leftover bread.

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.

Forgot to give this recipe a star rating - it's always five stars for us!

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.
