Ingredients

For the pudding:
  • 175g (6oz) butter, softened
  • 175g (6oz) caster sugar
  • 3 large, or 4 medium, eggs
  • 175g (6oz) self-raising flour
  • Finely grated zest of 2 large oranges
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 3tbsp milk
For the sauce:
  • Juice of 2 large oranges
  • 5tbsp chunky Seville marmalade
  • 1.2-1.5 litre (2-2 pint) pudding basin, well-buttered

Put a disc of butter paper or Bakewell paper in the bottom of the basin, so that the pudding will turn out easily.

Method

  1. Beat the butter and sugar together, with an electric whisk, until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, with a tbsp of flour. Add the orange zest and then sift in the rest of the flour with the baking powder, add the milk and whisk in to make a smooth mixture.
  2. Spoon the mixture into the basin, cover with a piece of buttered, pleated Bakewell paper and a piece of foil with a pleat in.
  3. Put the basin in a steamer over a pan of boiling water (or balanced on an upturned saucer in a large pan). Cover with a lid and steam for 2 hours, checking occasionally and topping up with boiling water.
  4. Take off the heat and leave it for 5-10 mins, while you make the sauce. Bring the orange juice to the boil in a small pan and boil until reduced by half. Add the marmalade and stir over the heat to melt and make a sauce. Spoon over the pudding. Serve hot with custard, if you like.
