4oz (or 125g) White sugar 4oz (or 125g) Soft butter 2 Medium eggs Vanilla essence (optional) 185g (roughly half a jar) Marmalade Custard or cream to serve
1. Make a standard sponge batter by beating together the white sugar with the butter. 2. Gradually add two eggs, beating, plus optional drops of vanilla essence. 3. Grease a pudding bowl and put half a pot of marmalade into the bowl. 4. Scrape the batter into the bowl on top of the marmalade. 5. Put a tin foil hat on the pudding bowl, squeezing it tight under the rim. I no longer faff about with string, and it’s always ok! 6. Place the silver-hatted pudding bowl into a capacious saucepan and pour water in carefully till it comes a couple of inches up the side of the bowl. 7. Simmer the pudding for 2 hours, being careful to top up the water bath! Don’t let it boil dry - that’s a disaster… 8. After 2 hours using oven gloves lift bowl from saucepan, remove the lid, run a knife around to loosen the pudding, clap a medium EB dish over the bowl a swiftly invert. Be careful - that marmalade is hot!
