  • 142ml double cream

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 25g golden caster sugar

  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

  • 1 tbsp orange juice

  • 2 eggs

  • 225ml semi-skimmed milk

  • 4 tbsp marmalade

  • 4 tbsp sultanas

  • 50g butter or margarine

  • 250g lightly stale bread crusts removed


  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/140C fan/Gas Mark 3. Lightly butter a 1.5 litre ovenproof dish.
  2. Soak the sultanas in the orange juice, for an hour or overnight if possible.
  3. Mix together the butter/spread, cinnamon and nutmeg. Lightly butter the bread slices using mixture. Cut each slice into quarters diagonally. Layer half the bread, butter side up, on the bottom of the dish and spoon over the marmalade and half the drained sultanas. Top with the remaining buttered bread again buttered side up and sprinkle with the remaining sultanas.
  4. In a jug, beat together the milk, cream, eggs and sugar together lightly, using a fork. Pour the mixture evenly over the bread. Put the dish in a roasting tin and pour hot water around it to a depth of about 2.5cm/1in.
  5. Bake for 35 minutes until the pudding is just set - it should be yellow inside and nicely browned on top. Serve with double cream.

Handy Hint

For those with a very sweet tooth replace the bread with brioche.
