Signature Dish: Pantry Pudding

Pantry Pudding

[box]This is a Signature Dish competition entry by Chantalellis. Creating delicious puddings from items in the cupboard is one of my favourite things to do. Thanks for sharing this recipe! – Matt[/box]

This recipe, handed down from my Ouma (Grandmother), is always quick and easy to make because the ingredients are things everyone has in their pantry or food cupboard! It has a cake like texture, surrounded by oozing thick syrupy goodness. Particularly handy for impromptu dinners or family gatherings! :)

Serves 6

For the batter

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1 tbsp margarine/butter
  • 2 tbsp marmalade/jam
  • 1 egg
  • a little milk
  • 1 tsp ground ginger (optional)

For the sauce

  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 1.5 cups boiling water
  • 1tsp cinnamon (optional)

Pre-heat your oven to 180°C, gas mark 6.

Put all batter ingredients into a 4 inch deep oven proof dish (eg large round Pyrex dish), mix thoroughly to a slightly sticky dough consistency. Spread evenly across base of the dish.

Mix the sauce ingredients in a jug and stir until sugar the is dissolved, then pour over the batter.

Bake in the oven until brown, approximately 25-30 minutes.
