Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding

Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding – Can you even imagine how delicious it is? With or without custard, it is my new favorite winter dessert.

My Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding happened by chance. I had a basket full of blood oranges that I had to use before I leave for Port Elizabeth tomorrow and I craved ginger. So think of this dessert as a Malva Pudding turned on its head, literally! The pudding is a rich sponge and the buttery sauce is packed with orange and ginger.

Did you know that the earliest puddings where boiled in a bag or cloth? Only later they were placed in a buttered bowl, covered with a cloth, and steamed. Baked or chilled puddings evolved years later. Puddings can be savory or sweet, think of Yorkshire Puddings, which I am dying to make soon. I read somewhere that the British Sticky Toffee Pudding is the most popular dessert in the world and maybe it is this bit of useless information that started my cravings for ginger and pudding. My Saucy Orange Ginger Pudding delivered on all levels. It was moist, oozing with sauce and the ginger that hits you in the back of the throat, just gorgeous.

For the sauce

250 ml/1 cup cream
150 g butter
250 ml /1 cup sugar
125 ml / ½ cup blood orange juice
10 cm fresh ginger – optional


Preheat your oven to 180C. Spray 2 x 500 ml moulds with non-stick spray. You can also just use an 20 x 20 cm oven dish. In your mixer, beat the egg and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the marmalade and mix. Sift the flour, salt, ginger and bicarb together in another bowl. Melt the butter and mix with the vinegar and while your machine is running, add the flour and vinegar and milk mixture to the egg and sugar mix until all the ingredients are well incorporated. Pour the batter into the greased moulds or oven-dish and bake for about 40-45 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. In the meantime make the sauce.
Place all the ingredients for the sauce in a pot and slowly melt it. When the pudding comes out the oven, pour the sauce over the pudding. Initially it looks as if the sauce is too much, but trust me, it all disappears into the pudding, hence the saucy result!
