I spoke to a lovely lady in Shifnal at the weekend, She’d really enjoyed the last posting here and was keen to try the Clementine Marmalade recipe.
I love chatting about jamming.
I’m not interested in celebrity gossip & I feel my opinions on world affairs are neither knowledgeable nor of much value BUT I can talk jam!
I did say I would post more recipes but for now I thought I’d let you into a little secret for making the best bread & butter pudding (in my opinion) in the world.

Bread & Butter Pudding with Clementine Marmalade.
You will need:
8 slices of fruit loaf (I used Warburton’s Fruit Loaf with Orange )
good butter
jar of Jammy Cow Clementine Marmalade with Cointreau
400ml milk (or a mix of 350ml milk & 50 ml of double cream)
2 eggs
25g sugar
15-30ml Cointreau (depending on your preference)

Grease a 1 litre dish with butter.
Butter the fruit loaf generously with butter and marmalade then cut each slice in half (I like mine on the diagonal).
Arrange the bread, buttered side up, on the dish in layers, pointed crusts pointing up.
Beat the eggs into the milk together with the Cointreau if using extra.
Pour the egg mixture over the bread slices then leave for about half an hour while the bread soaks up the custard.
While it is soaking, pre-heat the oven to 180C/355F/Gas4
Before putting into the oven sprinkle with sugar for an extra crispy top.

Cook for about 30 or 40 minutes until the custard is set & the bread is toasty brown.

Serve with cream, custard or ice cream.

You’ll need to excuse me now….strangely, I have the need to make pudding.
