Chocolate orange pond pudding se rv e s 4–6 150g unsalted butter, cut into 1–2cm cubes, plus extra for greasing 185g self-raising flour 15g cocoa powder 20g caster sugar 125g shredded suet 1 orange 150–175ml whole milk 150g soft dark brown sugar 25g dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces Equipment 1.2 litre pudding basin

This is my take on Sussex pond pudding – the classic suet pud boiled with a whole lemon inside. I use a whole orange instead and add chocolate. The juice from the fruit combines with the melted chocolate, butter and sugar to create an irresistible sauce that floods out as the pudding is cut – hence the name. Grease a 1.2 litre pudding basin with butter. Mix the flour, cocoa, caster sugar and suet together in a large bowl. Finely grate the zest of the orange and mix this in too. Gradually work in enough milk to form a soft, slightly sticky dough. Take a third of the pastry. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to a circle slightly bigger than the basin. Invert the basin onto the pastry and cut around it to form a lid. Add the offcuts to the remaining pastry and roll out to a circle, about 30cm in diameter. Use this to line the pudding basin. Make sure there are no cracks in the pastry. Put half the butter, brown sugar and chocolate in the lined basin. Pierce the zested orange all over with a skewer and sit it on top. Add the remaining butter, sugar and chocolate. Dampen the pastry edges with milk or water and put the pastry lid on top. Press the edges together to seal and trim off the excess. Place a piece of baking parchment on a sheet of foil and make a large pleat in the middle, folding both sheets together. Put the parchment and foil on top of the pudding, foil side up, and secure with string, looping the end of the string over the top of the pudding and tying it to form a handle (as shown on page 91). Stand the pudding basin in a large pan and pour in enough boiling water to come halfway up the side of the basin. Put a tight-fitting lid on the pan and bring to a simmer. Lower the heat to maintain a simmer and steam the pudding for 2¼ hours. Top up the boiling water during this time if necessary so the pan doesn’t boil dry. Lift the pudding basin from the pan. Remove the paper and foil and run the tip of a small, sharp knife around the edge of the pudding, to help release it, if necessary. Invert a large plate or deep dish over the top of the basin and turn both over to unmould the pudding. Serve at once, cutting into the pudding carefully as the juices flood out (the orange isn’t intended to be eaten). Serve with cold cream.

Bread and butter pudding No recipe collection should be without a bread and butter pudding. It is such a simple and rich pudding, but so rooted in Great Britain. Served straight from the oven, this is one of the best puddings ever!

Serves 4–6 butter, softened, for greasing the dish and spreading 1/ loaf of white bread, about 500g 2 1 nutmeg 600ml double cream 1 vanilla pod, split in half lengthways and the seeds scraped out 75g caster sugar 8 large egg yolks 150g raisins demerara sugar for glazing your favourite ice cream (my favourite is Buffalo Vanilla Ice Cream on page 217), to serve (optional)

Grease an ovenproof serving dish with butter. Remove the crusts from the bread, then slice and butter each slice. Spread the slices out on your work surface and grate the whole nutmeg over them, then leave them to one side until needed. Put the cream and vanilla seeds and pods into a saucepan over a high heat and bring just to the boil. Whisk the sugar and egg yolks together in a heatproof bowl. Pour the boiling cream onto the egg mix, whisking, then leave to one side to cool a little. Pass the custard through a fine sieve. Pour a layer of the custard into the greased dish. Sprinkle with some of the raisins and then add a layer of bread. Repeat this process until all the ingredients have been used. Leave on one side to rest for 25 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 130°C/ Gas Mark 1/2 . Place the pudding in the oven and bake for 25–30 minutes until the custard is just set. Remove the dish from the oven and leave the pudding to stand for 10 minutes. Sprinkle a thick layer of demerara sugar over the top and use a blowtorch to caramelise. Serve with ice cream, if you fancy.

“ No recipe collection should be without a bread and butter pudding... this is one of the best puddings ever!”
