Morgan’s clementine sponge pudding

clementineIn a search for a decent and quick stodgy pudding BUT containing at least *some* fruit, Morgan came up with this last night.  Serves 6, or 4 greedy people.

  • 115g butter
  • 115g sugar
  • 1 tsp baking power
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 large orange, zested and juiced
  • 2 eggs
  • 115gm plain flour
  • 3 clementines, peeled and segmented so no pith remains

Lightly oil a microwave-friendly pudding basin. Put the clementine segments and the golden syrup in the bottom of the basin.

In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, the orange zest and juice, then sift in the flour and baking powder and mix quickly to combine all the ingredients to a smooth batter.  Pour the batter carefully on top of the clementines and syrup in the pudding basin.  Microwave on full power for 5 minutes and leave to stand for a further 5 minutes.  Turn out onto a plate so that the syrupy clementine sauce runs down the sides of the pudding.

Serve with custard, ice cream or single cream.
