  • For the sponges:
  • 100g butter
  • 50g light soft brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 75g self raising flour
  • 50g wholemeal self raising flour
  • 1 satsuma, segmented
  • 100g Duerr’s Half Sugar Marmalade
  • For the topping:
  • 100g Duerr’s Half Sugar Marmalade
  • 50ml orange juice


1 Pre-heat the oven to 190ºC/170ºC fan/Gas 5.

2 Grease 4 small glass or ceramic pudding basins (about 11cm diameter) with butter.

3 Place the butter, sugar, eggs, flours and satsuma into a food processor and blend for a minute until well mixed. Add the marmalade and mix again very briefly, just until the marmalade is blended through.

4 Divide the mixture between the pudding basins and place on a baking tray. Cook for 30 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

5 Set aside for a few minutes while you make the glaze. Heat the marmalade and orange juice in a pan or in the microwave and stir until dissolved.

6 Carefully turn the puddings out onto serving plates and spoon over the sauce, serve with vanilla ice cream or custard.
