Steamed puddings are hefty eating. Plan a light main course to precede one. If orange isn’t what you fancy, lemon will stand in adequately – or whatever flavour you want!


  • 4 oz (100 g) unsalted butter
  • 4 oz (100


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together.
  2. Stir in the dry ingredients.
  3. Beat in the eggs, then add the milk and orange juice and zest.
  4. Butter the sides of four small bowls or four large ramekin dishes. Put a tablespoon of syrup in each bowl and pour on the batter. Fasten silver foil loosely across the tops to act as lids, and tie on with string.
