- 1 jar Bonne Maman whole sliced orange marmalade
- 175g unsalted butter, softened
- 175g light muscovado sugar
- 1 tbsp golden syrup
- 3 large eggs
- 175g self raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- For the sauce:
- 35g butter
- 150g light muscovado sugar
- 100g marmalade
- 3 tbsp whisky
- 150ml double cream
- You will need:
- 6 dariole moulds, buttered and lightly floured
Set a slice of orange in the base of each dariole mould along with a little marmalade; set aside. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the syrup, then eggs; fold in the flour, baking powder and ginger.
Divide the mixture between the moulds, cover with foil, smooth the tops and place in a large steamer or pan with a trivet. Half-fill the pan with boiling water, cover with a tight fitting lid; steam gently for 45 minutes. You may need to top up with more water.
For the sauce, put the butter, sugar, marmalade and whisky into a pan over a low heat. Stir occasionally until dissolved. Add the cream and lemon juice. Tip the puddings onto a hot plate and pour the sauce over.
The uncooked puddings will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge
