The name says it all – this is indeed the Queen of Puddings. A luscious pudding of milk, eggs and bread is perked up with a peppy layer of citrusy ingredients like orange marmalade and lemon zest.

A layer of meringue goes atop this before baking, to make a totally irresistible dessert that is to be served warm and fresh.
