Christmas Orange Bread Pudding Recipe
Preparation 15 mins
Cooking 35 mins
7 slices white bread
120ml orange juice
½ tbsp grated orange rind
25g butter, melted
½ cup mixture of raisins, green cherries and cranberries or red cherries
Snow powder and apricot jam for dusting and glazing
Preheat the microwave oven to 180°C.
Remove the crusts from the bread and cut bread into cubes.
Whisk together eggs, milk, orange juice, sugar and orange rind.
In a greased baking dish, layer half of the bread cubes, pour over half of the egg mixture, then drizzle with half the melted butter.
Sprinkle some of the mixed fruits over. Repeat layers.
Place the baking dish onto a metal tray and bake at 180°C for 35 mins or until a knife stick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Before serving, sift some snow powder over pudding or brush top with some warmed apricot jam for an attractive glaze. Serve warm.
