What you'll need
- 1 small brioche loaf
- 100ml double cream
- 2 free-range eggs
- 200ml milk
- 1 vanilla pod
- 50g sultanas
Whilst brioche produces great results, this tasty dessert can also be made using slices of bread, croissants or even hot cross bun slices as a seasonal treat!
- Cut the brioche into equal-sized slices, spread each piece with soft butter and Seville Orange Marmalade and lay the slices so that they overlap in an ovenproof dish and scatter over some sultanas (optional).
- Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl and whisk together with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Gently heat the milk and cream with a split vanilla pod and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Once simmering, remove from the heat, allow to cool slightly, remove the vanilla pod, and mix with the whisked eggs.
- Pour the egg custard over the bread slices and bake on a medium oven heat until golden and set. If preferred, the pudding can be sprinkled with a little sugar and cinnamon once hot out of the oven.
