Rich Chocolate Orange Pudding

  • BAKE: 6m
  • SERVES: 6


Method (Makes 1 unit – 6 portions)
Juice the 2 oranges and make up to 140ml with water.

Lightly grease a 900ml (1 ½ pint) microwaveable pudding bowl.

Slice the orange and place a slice onto the bottom of the bowl. Place the remaining slices equally round the bowl.

Place the cake mix, oil, orange zest and the liquid into a bowl and mix well with a fork. Pour the mixture into the bowl carefully without disrupting the orange slices. Cover with cling film and make two or three steam holes in it.

Using the microwave, cook on full power for the time recommended using the table below as a guide*

Remove the pudding from the microwave and leave to rest for 5 minutes before tipping the pudding onto a warm plate and serving immediately with cream or ice cream.

“All who tried the wedding cake I made were complimentary and almost all of it went by the end of the night and the Madeira did turn out to be sufficiently moist, despite my fears. The Chocolate Fudge Cake is, I find, a very forgiving cake mix and I would have to work really hard to mess up any cake ideas using it. So, thank you for your advice, thank you for your interest and thank you for providing cake and bread mixes that are straight forward, reliable, sensibly priced and good to eat".

Truly scrumptious anytime of year - good with alternate orange and lemon/lemon and lime slices - one of our 5 a day - probably not!
