I had some oranges in my fruit bowl that needed using so decided an orange flavoured dessert was in order. This orange almond self saucing pudding was the answer and it was a delicious one at that. So simple to make as well!
- 1 cup self raising flour
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 3/4 cup caster sugar
- 2tbs orange zest
- 50g butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2tsp vanilla extract
- 1tbs cornflour
- 1 1/2 cups orange juice
- Preheat oven to 180C and grease 4-6 ramekins
- Combine self raising flour, almond meal, 1/3 cup of the caster sugar and finely chopped orange zest in a bowl
- In a separate bowl melt the butter and allow to cool slightly
- Add the egg, milk and vanilla to the butter and whisk well to combine
- Pour into flour mixture and fold until just combined
- Spoon into the ramekins and set aside
- Combine the remaining caster sugar with the cornflour then sprinkle over the puddings
- Place the orange juice in a small saucepan then bring to the boil. Pour evenly over the puddings.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and cooked through
That’s all there is to these orange almond self saucing puddings! Zesty, saucy and oh so delicious! I love the flavour of oranges but don’t particular love eating them on their own so this is my new favourite way to use them!
I love that these puddings aren’t too sweet, but are still a very satisfying winter dessert option. I always think about chocolate or caramel when I think of self saucing puddings, so I love that these are a zesty, fruity alternative. The addition of almond meal makes the pudding nice and dense too!
If you want to serve this orange almond self saucing pudding at the end of a dinner then you can prepare everything up to the warmed juice in advance. Just pour over the juice and pop them in the oven before you’re ready to serve. They are particularly excellent with some vanilla ice cream on top too!
