Baked Orange Pudding

I love using seasonal fruit in my cooking, and this warm dessert is just perfect for cold winter nights using seasonal oranges. Experiment with different types of citrus like clementines, naartjies and grapefruit or use other dried fruit like dates or cranberries. 

Baked Orange Pudding
Serves 8


For the Base:
125 g butter, softened
260 g Huletts SunSweet Brown Sugar
4 extra large eggs, separated
115 g self-raising flour
125 ml (½ cup) milk
zest of 1 orange

For the Syrup:
50 g butter
125 ml (½ cup) freshly squeezed orange juice
50 g (¼ cup) Huletts White Sugar
15 ml (1 T) orange zest
30 ml (2 T) Huletts Maple Syrup
raisins, to serve (optional)


For the Base:
Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease 8 ramekins.
Cream the butter and Huletts SunSweet Brown Sugar together.
Add egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Fold the self-raising flour and milk alternately into the sugar mixture. Add the orange zest.
Beat the egg whites to soft peak stage and fold into the mixture.
Spoon the mixture into the ramekins.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until puffy and golden and a skewer inserted comes out clean.

For the Syrup:
Place the butter, orange juice, Huletts White Sugar and orange zest in a heavy base saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil.
Add the Huletts Maple Syrup and allow to boil for ± 5 minutes to thicken slightly.
As soon as the puddings are baked, remove from the oven and immediately pour the hot syrup over until saturated. Prick puddings with a skewer to assist with absorption of the syrup.
Serve warm, garnished with raisins.
