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 love this pudding. It's delicious and so easy to make. Alarmingly lovely when it's cold too so there's now now leftovers!

I used brioche rolls for this. As they were made with butter I left off buttering the rolls first, just spread the marmalade. I used a little butter to thickly butter the dish. It turned out to be the yummiest bread and butter pudding ever! Next time I shall use a little more whisky, but that is down to personal taste.

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!

Can I freeze a cooked bread and butter pudding?
