Butter one side of each piece of bread, then spread half of the slices with marmalade. Top with the other slices of bread to make sandwiches, cut in half and arrange snugly in baking dish. Beat the eggs, milk, cream, orange zest and sugar together and pour over. Top with a little extra marmalade- especially the rind, if liked. Place the baking dish in a baking tray half filled with boiling water.
