  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Heat the oven to 170°C/150°C/Gas 3½. Slice each bun horizontally into three. Set a small knob of butter aside and spread the rest on the bun slices. Reserve the bun tops for the last layer of the pudding.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  3. Gently heat the Elmlea, milk and orange zest until warm then pour in the egg and sugar mixture, whisking to combine.
  4. Layer the bun slices in an ovenproof dish, pouring on some of the custard as you go. Finish with the bun tops and pour over the remaining custard.
  5. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover, dot with the reserved butter and sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake for another 10 minutes until the custard is set.
