Steamed Orange Pudding Recipe

Steamed Orange Pudding Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

120 g/5 oz caster (superfine) sugar
100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup butter or margarine

2 eggs
100 g/4 oz/1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
2.5 ml/0.5 tsp baking powder
30 ml/2 tbsp orange juice
Grated rind of 1 orange
10 ml/2 tsp arrowroot

Method :

Cream 100 g/4 oz/0.5 cup of the sugar with the butter or margarine and eggs, then beat in the flour and baking powder, followed by the orange juice and half the orange rind. Pour the mixture into a greased 1.2 liter/2 pt/5 cup pudding basin and cover with pleated greaseproof (waxed) paper. Place in a large saucepan and add enough boiling water to come half-way up the side of the basin. Cover and steam for 1.5 hours, topping up with boiling water as necessary, until springy to the touch.


Mix the remaining sugar and orange rind in a saucepan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Mix the arrowroot with a little cold water, then stir it into the pan, bring to the boil and boil until the mixture thickens. Add a little more sugar and orange juice to taste, if necessary, and serve the sauce with the orange pudding.
