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

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.
