see how civilised and domestic I am this week?

Orange Sauce Pudding

The Pud
1 cup self raising flour
pinch salt
2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tblsps melted butter

The Sauce
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup water

Make the pud. Sift dry ingredients together, add milk, juice and butter. Stir until smooth and pour into greased oven dish. Now for the sauce. Bring water and juice to boil for the sauce, add sugar and stir until dissolved. Pour carefully over uncooked pudding and bake in moderate oven (180 C or 350 F) for 35-40 mins. Serve with cream, ice cream or plain yoghurt. It's very very sweet, so plain or Greek yoghurt goes especially well as it cuts the sweetness.

Recipe says it can also be made with lemon juice but I tried it once and it makes your mouth go funny. Soooo tart.

And because we are enjoying a domestic theme, and because I always keep my promises, here's a picture of what I do most evenings. Sort three children's clean washing into three piles.


Riveting, isn't it?

Suse, have saved the Orange Pud recipe. This WILL get done. Loved the way you baked it in the Corning Ware dish. This is what I do with a couple of my favourite self-saucing puds - a Chocolate one and a Butterscotch one. My dear departed husband loved making & eating the B/scotch one. He used to be the mailman on the Barkly Tableland (Qld/NT border). He gave the recipe away so that the women on the stations would have his favourite B/Scotch Pud waiting for him!

Suse, Lemon Delicious is one of our long time favorites. Yeah, can be a bit tart, but plenty of sweetened cream on top helps with that. Must try your orange version next time!
