Sponge pudding

I made this for xmas pudding and am just putting another in the over with our roast duck for New Year as it was so good !

Borrowed from various sources and modified by me ... use different jams or just as a Marmalade pudding ... nice light alternative to heavy sponge puddings.

  • 3 thick slices of brown bread, crust removed
  • 20g Plain Flour
  • 60g Brown caster sugar
  • 100g Butter
  • 70g Strong Jam (I use rhubarb and ginger jam then add some fresh ginger) or Marmalade
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Bicarb

Mix dry ingredients, bread first till it is fine crumbs then adding other dry. Heat jam and butter together then add the eggs and blitz together till light mixture, add to the dry mix and blend.
Pour into pudding bowl, cover with cellophane or fitted lid and put in oven tray with a couple of inches of water in it. Place in oven for two hours, checking water every so often.

Use a little of the jam heated to make a thick sauce on top then serve with custard.
