as a child I hated this pudding, but in the last few years when I was cooking for Mum I think it is quite nice, make jam sandwiches, cut into half and layer in dish, mix up a couple of eggs add milk sugar and vanilla essence, pour over sandwiches and let it stand for at least an hour then bake at about 180 till yummy looking. An Aunt used to just use the yolks and then make a meringue for the top I think she called it Queen Pudding.

i have used leftover french stick and day old brioche or any sweet bun is great too
i sprinkle choc chips on mine before i pour on the egg custard mix
kids hoover it then!

I prefer marmalade in mine rather than jam but only spread it on every other slice otherwise the flavour of the marmalade takes over.I love it made with brioche or panettone - kids like it made with chocolate chips but I usually do a mix of chocolate chips and raisins.This recipe is pretty close to mine:

Our favourite is a Savoury Bread Pudding for a Sunday tea or lunch.
8 slices Buttered bread (no crusts) 4 Spring onions,2tbs Parsley,100gms Ham (or bacon) 2 cups Tasty Cheese. Layer all of the above into a buttered dish and pour over 4 Beaten Eggs,1tsp Chicken stock, Pepper & Salt and 2cups Milk. Stand 30 mins then bake 180-190 for 45 mins or until set & golden brown. I like to stand mine in a dish of water while cooking. Can be made in advance and stood covered in the fridge. Its YUMMY.

I like the Nigella version (or did before I had to give up gluten) with the sandwiches made with ginger jam, and the raisins simmered briefly in whiskey before adding them. decadent and delicious.

oh man this sounds really good

Pretty good made with croissants as well!They are buttery enough without adding more - some apricot jam and some chocolate chips OR spread with nutella instead - delish.

I add a handful of dates to mine, and add orange zest, cinnamon quail and vanilla pod to milk and cream mix while heating through.

ooooh! YUM! I'm definitely going to do it this way next time - LOVE the idea of using croissants!

And sprinkle slivered almonds over the top before baking and they will go crunchy.I always spread the bread with butter and jam.
