  • 10 tbsp marmalade
  • 8 tbsp golden syrup
  • 2 blood oranges, then peeled and sliced
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 75g ground almonds
  • 150g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g butter, melted
  • 200g greek yogurt
  • to serve cream or custard


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Put 1 tbsp each of the marmalade and golden syrup into 8 mini pudding basins. Trim a slice of blood orange to fit the base of each and push it in.

  • STEP 2

    Mix the dry ingredients together, then add the eggs, butter, yogurt and remaining marmalade, along with the orange zest. Spoon this into the basins to about three-quarters full, then sit them in a shallow tray and put them in the oven. Pour enough boiling water into the tray to flood the base. (This will stop the bottoms of the basins getting too hot.) Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a skewer poked into the middle of the puddings comes out clean.

  • STEP 3

    Turn out the puddings onto plates and serve with the remaining orange slices and cream or custard.
