Steamed chocolate and orange pudding with chocolate sauce


Serves 6

Time 1hr 10min


For the pudding

Butter, for greasing

175g/6oz butter, softened

175g/6oz caster sugar

Grated zest of 1 orange

3 eggs

175g/6oz self raising flour, sifted

50g/2oz chocolate chips

For the chocolate sauce

225ml/8fl oz pouring cream

4oz/110g dark chocolate, chopped


1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/350˚F/Gas Mark 4. Lightly grease six mini pudding basins with some melted butter. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together with the orange zest until light and fluffy. This should take 3-4 minutes. Add in the eggs and mix completely.

2. Add the flour mix into the mixing bowl with the butter and eggs and mix until completely smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips at this stage.

3. Divide between the prepared pudding basins and then place the basins in a deep roasting tray (½ filled with water). Cover the pudding basins with a layer of parchment paper and a layer of tin foil, using the tin foil to cover and seal the entire tray.

4. Transfer to the preheated oven and cook  for  45minutes–one hour or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Invert the puddings onto a serving platter and serve with some chocolate sauce and whipped cream
