  • 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
  • juice


  • lemon

You will need:

  • 6 dariole moulds, buttered and lightly floured


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
