Steamed Orange Puddings

Recipe by ImPat

This was one of the courses that we cooked in a cooking class that I recently took and all the recipes were from Australian Delicious. As I am diabetic I did not eat but everyone raved about it and times are estimated as we all helped in the cooking of it. Suggested you serve with cream or custard they served with cream on the night.

What an unusual pudding at least for the 2 of us, & a very tasty one, at that! I did zest a large orange (wanted a lot of that) for the pudding itself, but used 2 smaller oranges when it came to the sauce! Didn't serve this with anything else but that orange sauce, & it was wonderfully satisfying! What a great new dessert for me to make when we next have company for dinner! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]

  1. Grease 6 3/4 cup size (185ml) dariole moulds - grease well and then blot with kitchen paper or you can spray with oil and blot with kitchen paper.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar in an electric mixer until pale.
  3. Sift flour and baking power, then add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.
  4. Add milk and then beat for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is light and combined.
  5. Divide mixture among greased moulds.
  6. Cut 6 x15cm squares of baking paper and foil.
  7. Place the paper on the foil and fold to form a pleat in the centre and place over the moulds, foil side up and then tie with kitchen string to secure.
  8. Place the moulds in a large baking dish and pour in enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the moulds.
  9. Cover the pan, then boil for 40 minute, keeping an eye that the liquid does not boil out, until pudding are firm or alternatively as we did in class we put the baking tray in a 175C preheated oven and baked the puddings in their water bath for about 35 to 40 minutes.
  10. Meanwhile for the sauce, place the juice and sugar in a pan with 100ml of cold water and stir over low heat until sugar dissolves.
  11. Add orange slices and grand marnier if using, then simmer, stirring occassionally, for 45 minutes or until the sauce is thickened and reduced.
  12. Allow the pudding to stand in the moulds for 5 minutes, then invert onto plates and pour over the sauce and serve drizzled with custard or cream.
