Paddington Bear’s French Toast With Pineapple Marmalade

To celebrate the launch of Paddington 2 on DVD and Blue-Ray on March 21 2018 we’re delighted to bring you this cute-as-a-button recipe for Paddington’s favourite pineapple marmalade – and a delicious French toast sandwich you can use it in. Yum!

Makes: 5


3 medium eggs
150ml milk
50g caster sugar
Pinch mixed spice
150g unsalted butter
1 loaf sliced white bread
Pineapple marmalade (recipe below)
50g icing sugar, for dusting


In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, caster sugar and mixed spice together and whisk well

Spread the marmalade evenly to cover 5 pieces of white bread, placing another sliced bread on top. Continue till 5 sandwiches are made.

Put 30g of butter in a small frying pan over a medium heat, once it starts sizzling after been melted. Dip bread into the egg mixture and place into the pan, cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or till golden brown.

Remove from the pan, and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes on a chopping board. Once slightly cooled cut out with a bear cutter.

Finish off with dusting icing sugar on the cut-out bears, arrange on the plate.

Using a cookie cutter, cut bear shapes from your french toast sandwiches.



120g finely diced orange
120g finely diced pineapple
150ml pineapple juice

50g caster sugar
5g pectin


Wash the orange skin under cold water, before dicing.

Reduce the heat to a simmer over medium heat, for about 20-25minutes till the oranges have softened, continue stirring so the mixture doesn’t catch on the base.

Do a tester by putting small amount onto a plate and cooling it down to see the consistency in the fridge

Once cooked, transfer into a tray to cool down.
