Perfect pudding

Lets Talk Magazine, Post on 27th February, 2013

They’re getting all steamy at The Dog in Grundisburgh – if this delicious recipe is anything to go by.

Steamed orange and marmalade pudding

There is nothing better than a good steamed pudding. The addition of marmalade, home-made or bought, gives the pudding the stickiness of a treacle pudding with a bit of a zing. It’s a beautifully coloured pudding, light in texture and just perfect on a cold day.

We make individual puddings here at the pub or you can make one large family sized pudding. Panko breadcrumbs are Japanese and much airier and lighter, they are available in most supermarkets. Makes six individual puddings or one large family sized.


  • 150g panko breadcrumbs
  • 25g wholemeal flour
  • 120g demerara sugar
  • 120g butter
  • 135g marmalade
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate soda


  • In a mixing bowl combine the panko breadcrumbs and wholemeal flour.
  • Mix together the sugar, marmalade, butter in a heavy base sauce pan, melt all of the ingredients together. Combine them so they are nicely melted but do not boil the mixture.
  • While the mixture is still hot add the bicarbonate of soda.
  • Now add the sugar, marmalade, butter mix to the breadcrumbs and flour.
  • Pour the mixture into the individual pudding bowls and use the back of a spoon to level the top. Line the bowls with cling film or greaseproof paper and foil pleated in the centre, pulling the sheets down the outside of the bowl. Tie string around the rim and take it over the top and on the other side to make a handle for lifting. Trim off excess paper all the way around, then place the pudding in a steamer fitted over a saucepan of boiling water. Steam the puddings for 25-30 minutes.
  • Alternatively you can make 1 large pudding but allow 1 hour cooking time.
  • To serve, loosen the pudding using a palette knife, remove coverings and turn out onto a warmed plate. We serve with custard or ice-cream.
