Don't leave any raisins on show before cooking in the oven as they easily burn and taste horrible. Placing the ovenproof dish on a baking tray, this may save you cleaning the oven if the filling is very generous.
This is a brilliant classic recipe. I've made it again since but in place of the marmalade I used the zest of 1 lemon and a desert spoon of vanilla essence in the custard mixture - 19 Nov 2017
Really quick and easy to make. Great way to use up bread that's gone a bit stale. I used jam and cherries instead of marmalade and apricots for taste preference. - 10 May 2017
