Serves 2-3

Ingredients

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4/ 180oc.
  2. Butter the bread slices liberally with the butter on one side, spread the marmalade on two of these slices and sandwich them together with the remaining bread making 2 marmalade sandwiches.
  3. Cut these into triangles and then place them into the baking dish that has been lightly greased. The sandwiches should be standing almost upright.
  4. To make the custard whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk and cream until well combined.
  5. Mix in the orange zest and pour over the bread.
  6. Scatter over the candied peel and the Demerara sugar and place in the pre heated oven.
  7. Bake for 25-35 minutes until the bread is golden and puffed up and the crust is crunchy.
  8. Serve the pudding with fresh cream, crème fraiche or a nice homemade custard.
