Orange Pudding

Orange Pudding
Orange fruits let us taste the taste of summer even in these freezing cold, and this pudding recipe really delivers the full taste of these wonderful fruits, despite being very simple to prepare.

The "trick" is basically to use a whole fruit instead than just its juice and some grated rind. Believe me, it's a completely different taste, so don't spare money on some sub specimen, buy a large, great looking and good smelling orange fruit. Anyway, enough talk and we have to cook, so let's go to list the ingredients.

Ingredients (serves 6)
1 whole large orange fruit
1½ cup caster sugar
1½ cup milk
½ cup softened butter
½ cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
icing sugar

Preparation
Put the orange in a pot filled with water and cook it on medium heat for about 2 hours. Open it to eliminate seeds and other hard parts then put it into a food processor with all the other ingredients except the icing sugar. Process until you have a very smooth mixture. Grease a 5-6 cup capacity pan and pour into the mixture then bake in a 350F preheated oven for about an hour or until the surface is golden. Before serving dust the pudding with icing sugar.

lululu said...

wonderful recipe!
u did actually puree the whole orange with other ingredients by using food processor? did i get it right? cos i'm wondering if the batter will become tough?

@ B&D and LOSTPASTREMEMBERED

Thanks! I read about a lemon based one and I thought that an orange one would be even better (at least for my personal taste). I think one could also use tangerines if he like them.

@LULULU

Yeah, I processed the whole orange, cut in pieces though because I had to remove the seeds.

Wow this was delicious!
I made it for dessert tonight, my boys devoured it.
This is my first time having a baked pudding, I have had bread pudding, rice pudding and instant pudding out of the box but never baked.
What a great flavour, I will definitely be making it again!
Thank you for sharing!
