Sweet Steamed Marmalade Pudding Recipe


Fruit-based preserves are always good when added to desserts. This steamed sweet marmalade pudding used some of the sweet homemade mandarine marmalade that we recently posted on, as well as some of the quince jelly we made a while back. It was quite easy to make, with nearly all of the ingredients sourced from the pantry. It turned out as something in-between a pudding and a cake. Delicious served with a spoonful of ice-cream, whipping cream or sour cream.



500g plain flour
2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
100g butter
200g quince jelly
50g sweet marmalade
3 eggs


50g sweet marmalade
50g butter


  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and bicarb.
  2. Heat together the butter, quince jelly and marmalade until melted and well incorporated.
  3. Allow this mixture to cool slightly, then add to the flour and bicarb mix, along with the eggs. Beat to a smooth batter.
  4. Heat together the butter and marmalade for the sauce.
  5. Grease a pudding basin and dust with flour.
  6. Pour the marmalade sauce in to the bottom of the pudding basin.
  7. Pour the batter on top of the sauce.
  8. Cover loosely with aluminium foil. Place in a roasting dish filled with hot water.
  9. Place the whole lot in the oven at 160C. Bake for about 1.5 hours.
  10. The pudding is cooked when a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  11. To serve, turn the pudding out on to a plate. Slice and serve with cream or ice cream.
