75g butter, at room temperature
9 slices of 1 day old bread, crusts removed
5tbs thick orange marmalade
Zest of 2 limes
125 sultanas
50ml mixed peel
1tsp ground cinnamon
3 free range eggs
250ml full fat milk
250 single cream
few drops of vanilla extract
3tbs demerera sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C
  • Spread the butter onto both sides of the bread and cut into triangles.
  • Spread the marmalade on one side of the slices of bread.
  • Place 12 bread triangles in the base of a suitably sized oven-proof dish so they are overlapping slightly.
  • Sprinkle over half of the sultanas, then half of the mixed peel, lime zest, ground cinnamon and sugar.
  • Cover with the more bread, then repeat the exercise.
  • Finally lay a third layer of bread on top to finish.
  • In a mixing bowl,, beat the eggs, vanilla extract, milk and single cream with a whisk.
  • Pour over the top of the bread and allow to stand for 1 hour so that all the bread has soaked up the egg mixture.
  • Finally sprinkle over some demerera sugar and place in the middle of the oven for 1 hour.
  • When fully cooked, spoon out and serve with Creme Anglais.
  • Delicious!
