Preheat oven to 180°C.

Cut the bread into thin 1cm slices and spread a thick layer of butter and a thin layer of marmalade on each.

Then arrange the slices in layers in a 1-litre ovenproof dish that has been greased with butter.

Beat the eggs, milk, vanilla essence, sugar and salt. Pour this over the bread and let it rest for about 10 minutes.

Bake in a bain marie for 30-40 minutes or until puffed up like a soufflé. Serve it with syrupy canned citrus wedges. It’s also delicious with ice cream and a sprinkling of icing sugar.

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
