  • whole milk 275ml
  • earl grey tea bags 2
  • unsalted butter 60g, softened, plus extra for the dish
  • thick white sandwich bread 10 slices, crusts removed
  • single cream 300ml
  • eggs 4
  • caster sugar 40g
  • vanilla extract 2 tsp
  • fine-shred seville marmalade 100g
  • demerara sugar 20g


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Pour the milk into a medium pan over a low heat. Bring to a gentle simmer, making sure it doesn’t boil, then remove from the heat. Add the teabags and cover. Leave to steep for 20 minutes.

    Step 2

    Meanwhile, butter both sides of the bread slices and arrange in one layer on a large baking tray. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes, turning once, until lightly toasted. Set aside to cool.

    Step 3

    Remove the tea bags, gently squeezing out any excess tea, and discard. Stir in the cream and put over a medium heat, bringing almost to a simmer. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Slowly pour the warm milk mixture over the beaten eggs, whisking constantly until combined. Whisk in the vanilla extract.

    Step 4

    Spread marmalade on one side of each piece of toast and cut each piece into four triangles. Lightly butter the inside of a 2-litre ovenproof dish and arrange the toasted triangles inside, overlapping and layering them.

    Step 5

    Pour the egg mixture over the toast and leave to soak for at least 30 minutes. Reduce the oven to 170C/fan 150C/gas 3. Sprinkle the demerara over the pudding. Transfer to the oven and bake for 1 hour 5 minutes until golden brown and puffed up. Leave to sit for 10 minutes before serving.
