Orange Self Saucing Pudding

Orange Self Saucing Pudding Recipe

This Orange Self Saucing Pudding is a definite favourite in our house.  In the last 3 weeks I’ve made it 3 times.  It’s that good!!

On the first night I made this Orange Self Saucing Pudding my fiance announced it was his new favourite dessert and went back for seconds!  This pudding is super easy, so delicious and it’s also a great way to enjoy the abundance of oranges on the market at the moment.  In fact, it’s so good and so easy you will never go back to those self saucing puddings that come in a box!

Better still, it’s the type of dessert you can whip up on a weeknight after work that is sure to impress the family as it’s so quick to prepare.  What could be better than that?

Have you made your own self saucing puddings before?  What are your favourite flavour combinations?

    Yum, this looks amazing! I love self-saucing puddings and citrus flavors are my favorite. I love how quick + easy this one is... plenty of room for added spices and things.

    It looks so yummy and enticing. The pudding is unique simply because of its sauce. I want to have it as a dessert for our anniversary.

    Ooh fabulous! We're going through a citrus obsession in our house at the moment. This might be a great dessert to whip up on Friday when the cold nights hit again. Thanks!

    I would like to make this. Can you please clarify - is light brown sugar the soft sugar or fine raw sugar?

    • delicieux September 8, 2011  8:32 am Reply

      Hi Tes, brown sugar is white sugar with molasses added. You can get 2 types of brown sugar at the supermarket. Light brown with up to 3.5% of molasses added and dark brown sugar with up to 6% of molasses. Raw sugar is different in that the sugar crystals are unrefined and larger. I find that using brown sugar in this helps add an extra depth of flavour, but by all means you can use regular sugar :D I hope that helps.

    Is your "cornflour" the same as America's cornstarch?

      Hi Hamich, yes, you can use cornstarch. Let me now how it goes.
