Marmalade bread and butter pudding

Marmalade bread and butter pudding / Pudim de pão com geléia de laranja

Yesterday I did two things for the first time in my life: I made bread pudding and watched “Fargo”.

Let’s just say that the dessert was a thousand times better than the movie – and for the record, I like the Coen brothers. Even though I’m 14 years late for this, I think Frances McDormand should mail her Oscar to Kristin Scott Thomas, Brenda Blethyn or Emily Watson – the award should have gone to any of the three.

Marmalade bread and butter pudding
adapted from Donna Hay magazine

softened butter, for spreading
8 thick slices bread
1 cup marmalade
2 cups (480ml) whole milk
1 cup (240ml) single (pouring) cream
3 eggs
½ cup (100g) caster sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons demerara sugar
custard, ice-cream or double (thick) cream, to serve

Preheat oven to 160°C/320°F. Butter the bread slices, spread half with marmalade and sandwich with remaining slices.
Cut in half and arrange in two 3 cup-capacity (720ml) ovenproof dishes. Place the milk, cream, eggs, caster sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl and whisk well. Pour over the bread. Allow to soak for 1–2 minutes. Sprinkle over the demerara sugar and place in a large deep baking dish. Add enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the dishes.
Bake for 1 hour 5 minutes or until just set. Serve with custard or cream.

Serves 6

I saw Fargo in the theatre and it made me so anxious. A slice of this bread pudding would have put me at ease! This looks scrump-dele-icious!!!

This is on my to do list for quite some time, not Donna Hay's but marmalade bread pudding.

Bread puddings are very nice when eaten warm.

I've never made bread pudding, either! And all I remember about Fargo is "yah" (right movie?) and the wood chipper. Otherwise it was ... snowy.

I actually still haven't watched that classic, but I'll happen try both the movie and this pudding!
