Orange & Golden Syrup Pudding ...



I came across this video and recipe for an Orange & Golden Syrup Pudding  and thought Bri might like it so I gave it a go.  It turned out okay, but I think I could modify the recipe a bit and make it a self saucing pudding that you bake in a casserole, instead of a steamed pud.  The recipe is actually cooked in a steam oven (that is what the promotion is for) but I don't have one so just steamed it on the stove top in a crock pot.

For the pudding batter:
1 orange, zested and juiced
3 tablespoons golden syrup
175 gms SR flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
175 gms butter, softened
175 gms caster sugar
3 eggs - I only used 2 because it just seemed a lot - it worked fine
~
For the orange liqueur sauce:
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 tablespoon caster sugar
3 tablespoons golden syrup
20 mls orange liqeur (Cointreau)
Heat these ingredients in a small saucepan until the sugar has dissolved.
~
For the yoghurt cream:
500gms greek or plain yoghurt - I think half this amount would be plenty
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or extract
Mix these ingredients together to make a serving cream
~
 In  a pudding basin, place the golden syrup and orange zest (from the batter ingredients) ...
~
 In a food processor, blent all other batter ingredients until smooth ...
~
 Pour batter over golden syrup in the basin, cover with baking paper then seal on the lid.  Place in a crock pot with water 1/2 way up the basin.  Bring to a gentle boil then put the crock pot lid on and steam for 1 hour.
~
 When done, turn out the pudding onto a serving plate - it looks a bit forlorn but when you drizzle over the liqueur sauce and top with the yoghurt vanilla cream with a dollop of cream ...

It was really good!  A small slice was just enough...

  1. This looks delicious. If you adapt the recipe to a self saucing pud, I'd love the recipe.

    A question about your banner. Is that Sacre Coeur in Paris on the right? What is it painted on?
