This is such an easy and tasty pudding to whip together for after a Sunday roast. Let’s be honest, a lot of people are going to be having family over for a few sunday’s in the coming months – Mother’s Day and Easter Sunday for example, and if you are like me and you have little children, sometimes putting together a big meal and then ¬†finishing that off with a big pudding or dessert isn’t always going to happen – not without some serious misdemeanours in the kitchen or a spouse who will take the kids out all morning! So I say to you, ditch the stress and try this for the perfect pudding to try at any time of the year (especially as Spring is refusing to spring up North in the UK!)

You will need:

  • 4 eggs
  • 250g butter
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 75g light brown sugar
  • 225g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 150g marmalade
  • zest of 1 orange plus 2 tbsp juice

For the topping

  • 75g marmalade
  • 100ml orange juice

So this is it. You ready?

Pre heat oven to GM4, 350F.

Place all the pudding ingredients into a mixer. Mix. Pour into a greased pyrex dish or similar. Bake for 50-60 mins (check after 40mins with a skewer to see if it comes out clean and is done).

For the topping melt the marmalade and orange juice together whilst the pudding is baking, allow to cool slightly, then pour over the pudding when it comes out of the oven. Leave to cool slightly for 5-10mins.

Serve with custard or ice cream while you listen to everyone tell you how awesome the pudding is and how you must have slaved over the stove all morning.

You’re Welcome.
