Serves 4-6   |  20 mins plus 30 mins cooking


  • About 9 slices stale white bread, crusts removed
  • 1/3 or so of a jar of marmalade – thick cut and Seville orange ideally
  • Soft butter – about 50g or so
  • 100g golden sultanas (normal sultanas will do just as well)
  • 200ml double cream
  • 240ml milk
  • 1 tbsp whiskey
  • 3 eggs
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Finely grated rind of one orange
  • Icing sugar for dusting

You will also need…

A shallow, 1.5 litre or so ovenproof dish – rectangular or square – buttered


  • Pre-heat the oven to 190°c/170°c fan
  • Butter each slice of bread on one side and then thickly spread with marmalade. Cut each slice in half and arrange in the buttered dish, slightly overlapping.
  • Sprinkle the sultanas evenly over the bread.
  • Whisk the cream, milk, eggs, sugar, whiskey and vanilla extract gently together until combined and then pour the mix through a sieve over the bread slices. Leave it for 5 mins or so to soak in.
  • Finely grate the orange rind over the top and place the dish in a large roasting tin. Pour boiling water into the roasting tin to come about half way up the sides of the dish.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 mins or so until it’s lightly set but still has a bit of a wobble. Take it out and leave for 10 mins or so while you heat the grill.
  • To finish, sprinkle icing sugar all over and place under the hot grill for a minute or so to caramelise.
  • Serve hot with vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream
