Ingredients

  • 8 slices day-old crusty white bread, crusts removed
  • 50g very soft butter
  • 4 tbsp Seville orange marmalade, plus 4 tsp
  • 300ml full-fat milk

  • 4 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp whisky
  • Icing sugar, for dusting

Method

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.

Beat the milk, cream, eggs, vanilla, sugar and whisky together, then pour over the bread. Leave to soak for 30 mins.

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.
