  • 125 sultanas
  • 50ml mixed peel
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 free range eggs
  • 250ml full fat milk

  • few drops of vanilla extract
  • 3tbs demerera sugar

An absolute favourite pudding in our house and it is so simple to make.

Served with custard or cream, it is equally delicious.

Serves : 6        Prep/Cooking Time : 1hr15 mins + soaking


Prepare the Bread

Preheat the oven to 200°C

Spread the butter onto both sides of the bread and cut into triangles.

Now spread the marmalade on one side of the slices of bread

Assemble the Pudding

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.

Finish and Bake

Using a bowl, beat the eggs, vanilla extract and the milk and single cream with a whisk and 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!
