Essentials recipe Sticky sweet marmalade and ginger steamed pudding is really simple to make, taking only 4 mins to cook in the microwave. The tangy ginger flavour and the sweetness of the orange marmalade work so well together.


  • 90g butter, softened
  • 90g golden caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs, beaten
  • 90g self-raising flour
  • tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 balls chopped stem ginger, from a jar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • finely grated zest 1 orange

For the sauce:

  • juice 1 orange
  • 4 tbsp chunky Seville orange marmalade
  • 1-2 tbsp ginger syrup, from jar

If you don't have Seville orange marmalade you could always use some of your favourite marmalade instead!


  1. Beat the butter and sugar with a hand-held whisk, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, slowly, then fold in the flour, baking powder, ginger, stem ginger, milk and orange zest.
  2. Spoon the mixture into a well-buttered 900ml pudding basin, cover with clingfilm and microwave on full power for 4 mins in an 850-watt microwave, or 3 mins in a 900-watt microwave, until just cooked. Or you can decant into mini microwave-safe pudding basins and steam for about 1 min each for individual servings.
  3. Meanwhile, to make the sauce; put the orange juice in a pan and bring to the boil then reduce it by half. Stir in the marmalade and ginger syrup until it melts.
  4. Turn the pudding out onto a plate and serve with the orange sauce spooned over and custard, cream or ice cream.
