Marmalade panettone pudding.

Recipe by Nigel Slater published in the Guardian.
Panettone makes a fine bread and butter pudding.
Adding dollops of home made marmalade to this comforting pudding has made it even more interesting and satisfying to eat.
You could use half cream and half milk here, but the panettone adds a richness that I would argue makes such an addition unnecessary.
And a drizzle of cold double cream as you eat is excellent.
Serves 6.

325g panettone
5 heaped tbsp marmalade
4 large eggs
500ml creamy milk

Set the oven at 180C/gas mark 5.
You will also need a deep ovenproof dish measuring roughly 30x26cm, very lightly buttered.
Slice the panettone thinly, it really doesn’t matter if it crumbles.
If it is a good panettone then I think it should anyway.
Melt the marmalade in a small saucepan.
Put half of the panettone slices in a dish.
Spoon over half of the marmalade.
Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them lightly, then beat in the milk.
Pour half of the egg custard mixture over the panettone.
Add the remaining slices, the rest of the marmalade and then the custard.
Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes until it is puffed and golden.
Shake it gently.
It should wobble, but show no sign of uncooked custard.
Serve warm, and if you wish, with a drizzle of cream.
