Marmalade Pudding

When the IHCC  group announced  that their next chef was  Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall I was ecstatic. I love  him and his easy methods of cooking.  So hopping to try some of his recipes and participate as much as I can. Bit pressed for time these days, boys seem to on " I want to give mumma  a hard time these days"  kind of  mood these days, so  by the time I sit down to write anything my mind is blank.

My hubby once brought me this book by Chef Hugh , a book called Love your  Leftovers , its about how to use up leftovers and other food items  instead of throwing them into the bin .

One such recipe that caught my eye was this marmalade bread pudding. I had this jar of marmalade ,which needed to be finished as it just past its best before date,  and some bread lurking in the freezer. Any old bread would do or even fresh is also ok I guess.  The recipe is pretty straight forward, I reduced the recipe a bit as I wanted to make a small pudding .

Recipe : Marmalade Pudding  adapted from Marmalade pudding recipe from Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's  Love Your Leftovers  book.

Serves about 4-6

150g marmalade
2 eggs separated and 1 egg yolk
1/2 can of Nestle cream ( thats about 100ml)
50g sugar
75g breadcrumbs

Cream,ice cream or thin custard to serve

First whisk the egg whites till soft peaks form, set a side.

Then in a separate bowl add marmalde, egg yolks, cream  and sugar and whisk  them till combined.

Remove 1 tbsp of the bread crumbs and add the rest in to the egg yolk mixture. Fold in the egg whites.

Preheat oven to gas  mark 180 degree C , and lightly butter a 1 litre baking dish.

Pour the prepared batter into the dish  and sprinkle the reserved 1 tbsp breadcrumbs on top.

Place in a baking tray  and add  boiling hot water so that the water comes up to the sides of the pudding of pudding dish. Place this carefully inside the oven. Bake for 45- 50 minutes.

Remove , take the pudding dish carefully from the baking tray and cool slightly before serving with cream , or ice cream of some custard.

Enjoy!  Linkin this to IHCC's Welcome Hugh  theme for this week , .......


  1. That marmalade pudding sounds so good that I may get a jar just for it...

  2. I haven't had or made bread pudding in a while, this looks very inviting with that golden crisp topping, Nammi.

  3. I love Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's recipes too. This marmalade pudding looks amazing, Nammi. :D

  4. I love watching his cooking shows and everything on his farm! The marmalade pudding looks delicious!

  5. So happy to have you join us! The leftovers book sounds like one we all should own. I need help clearing out my pantry for sure. This dessert look really pretty and I can't believe that you only need a handful of ingredients to put it together. Sounds like it couldn't be easier!

  6. What a great idea of turning a few leftovers to make something so lovely!

  7. I love that you turned out this beautiful dessert with just a few things that needed to be used up. The book sounds inspiring.
