  1. Spread the butter evenly over each slice of bread, then spread with the marmalade. Cut each slice into 4 triangles. Arrange in a lightly buttered 1 quart (1.2 liter) dish. In a bowl, lightly beat the egg into the milk, then beat in the sugar and ginger. Pour the mixture over the bread and leave to stand for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350�F (180�C). Bake for 35 minutes or until the custard is set and the top is golden brown. Leave to cool completely, then wrap in foil, and freeze.
  3. To serve, defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Bake uncovered in a preheated 350�F (180�C) oven for 30 minutes, until heated through.
  • For a more traditional bread pudding, omit the marmalade and ginger.
