A firm family favourite in our house. This is the kind of pudding I love after something cosy like roast chicken, mashed potatoes and lashings of gravy.

  • Yield: 4 Servings


  • 1 oz (25 g) butter
  • 9 oz (250 g) caster or granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 oz (25 g) plain flour
  • 1 orange juice and zest
  • ½ lemon juice
  • 5 fl oz (150 ml) milk
  • 1 litre (1¾ pint) capacity ovenproof dish
How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F), Gas mark 4.
  2. Place the butter, sugar and egg yolks in a bowl and cream together, using a wooden spoon or the paddle attachment of an electric food mixer, until light and fluffy.
  3. Sift in the flour, then fold into the mixture along with the orange zest, orange and lemon juice, and milk.
  4. In a separate, clean dry bowl, whisk together the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the orange mixture.
  5. Pour the mixture into the dish, then place in the oven and bake for about 40 minutes. The top should be set, with a layer of orange curd on the bottom. Remove from the oven and serve with softly whipped cream or ice cream.
