Orange Self Saucing Pudding
- 1 ¼ cups of self raising flour sifted
- ½ cup of light brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- finely grated zest of 2 oranges
- ½ cup of milk
- 1 egg
- 50 g of melted butter
- 1 ½ cups of freshly squeezed orange juice
- ½ cup of boiling water
- ½ cup of caster sugar
- 2 teaspoons of cornflour
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (355 Fahrenheit) and grease 6 individual ramekins with butter or 1 large casserole dish.
- Sift the flour into a large bowl and add the brown sugar, orange zest and stir to combine.
- In a jug combine the milk, egg and melted butter and mix to combine. Add to the flour mixture and stir until combined before dividing between the ramekins.
- To make the sauce, combine the caster sugar and cornflour and sprinkle on top of the puddings. Combine the orange juice and boiling water and gently pour over the top of the puddings before placing in the oven. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the pudding is golden.
- Serve with whipped cream or vanilla bean ice cream.
This was delightful so light, just right flavor, loved it! My ramekins were probably smaller than the ones used in this recipe, as everything boiled over. Thankfully they were on a sheet pan. I will divide it into eight servings to keep that from occurring in the future. So if you have small ramekins, that hold 3/4 C or 200ml, learn from my mistake.
Thank you. Just made this pudding. Result: perfect. Had it with ice-cream. Planning to make another as soon as possible.

Delicious! Light, not at all stodgy ... I halved the sugar in the sauce, and just used flour instead of cornflour - yum!
So glad you enjoyed it!
Great recipe! I halved the sugar as my oranges are sweet & we don’t eat much sugar anyway & they were fabulous! Make them in a deep ramekin as you need to pot over all the juice mixture to get a good amount of sauce!
Thanks. I'm so glad you liked it!
Wow, this is really nice. A must try pudding dish. The season for orange is coming, I hope this winter I will definitely try this.
Yum just about to make this and am just wondering about the 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Is this added to the the milk and egg mixture?.
Yes it is. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the pudding. It's my husbands favourite.
Is your "cornflour" the same as America's cornstarch?
Hi Hamich, yes, you can use cornstarch. Let me now how it goes.

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

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!
Those look amazingly delicious! What a great dessert.

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.
