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.

I scaled this down to make for one person and followed the recipe exactly. It was very quick and easy to make. It was certainly above the usual old nursery B & B Pudding. Delicious.!!

I scaled down a smaller version for myself. Followed recipe exactly, so quick and easy to make. Would be great if there are unexpected visitors. The marmalade and whisky make it a touch above the good old nursery B & B. Delicious!!

This is restaurant quality pudding! Used all butter croissants...it's to die for and simple, tastes like you've spent hours in the kitchen. FABULOUS!

I don't think I would choose this in a restaurant and surely no one would think you have spent hours in the kitchen making it, but it was good.

Easy but messy to make! It was worth it though, as it was very nice.

Why does this recipe come up instead of the orange and apricot bread and butter pudding I was searching for?

Made this for a few dinner parties and everyone has loved it, even my brother who doesn't like bread & butter pudding. I used raspberry jam instead of marmalade and Armagnac instead of whisky and a raisin bread. I also made an Armagnac cream to go with it. Lovely!

Used a Tiger baguette because that's what needed using up but otherwise followed instructions. Preferred the rustic appearance that mine had and it tasted wonderful.

Didn't have enough marmalade in the fridge so made a variation...

RHUBARB & STRAWBERRY BREAD & BUTTER PUDDING
Spread stewed rhubarb on each slice of well-buttered homemade day-old bread and tucked strawberry halves between each slice. Left out the whisky but put in another glug of vanilla essence and hey presto! The result was delicious and very British...
I will submit this recipe via my binder for others to share.

Made for a whisky tasting and burns night supper. I used 2tblsp of whisky too and used croissants instead of bread. Was a huge hit

Beautiful. I buttered the bread with butter mixed with a good pinch of nutmeg & cinnamon. I also added two tablespoons of whisky which I could just about taste so was probably about right for us.

I used brandy rather than whisky and added a bit of orange zest. Absolutely delightful, definitely one to repeat.
