Orange Marmalade Vanilla Bean Bread Pudding
Just like the name, this bread pudding is buttery, creamy and it looks beautiful as well. I adapted this recipe from Donna Hay magazine. If you love bread pudding, give it a try and you will love it.
good sandwich bread, thick slices,
preferably whole milk
light cream (half&half)
cut into half lengthwise, and seeds scaped
dired, coarsely chopped, or dried blueberries, cherries
or white sugar
Preheat the oven to 320 degrees F.
Spread the butter on both sides of the bread.
Spread three slices of bread with marmalade.
Top each slice with remaining slices to make three sandwiches.
In a large bowl, whisk together milk, cream, eggs sugar, vanilla bean pot and seeds together until well mixed.
Add the dried cranberries, and whisk well.
Pour the cream mixture over the sandwiches, using the spoon press the top to let all the bread soak the cream mixture.
Let soak for about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle the sugar on top.
Bake for about 70 minutes until the pudding is set and the top starts to become golden.
Cool for about 10 minutes and serve warm.
