Reduced Sugar Marmalade Sponge Puddings

If like us, you can't resist a pudding but all of those calories make you feel guilty, this recipe is just for you. The marmalade we've used has 50% less sugar than its classic counterpart but 50% more fruit and it's no less yummy.

Time: 40 mins

Makes 4

Ingredients for the sponges:

100g butter

50g light soft brown sugar

2 eggs, beaten

75g self raising flour

50g wholemeal self raising flour

1 satsuma, segmented

100g Duerr’s Half Sugar Marmalade

Ingredients for the topping:

100g Duerr’s Half Sugar Marmalade

50ml orange juice


1) Pre-heat the oven to 190ºC/170ºC fan/Gas 5.

2) Grease 4 small glass or ceramic pudding basins (about 11cm diameter) with butter.

3) Place the butter, sugar, eggs, flours and satsuma into a food processor and blend for a minute until well mixed. Add the marmalade and mix again very briefly, just until the marmalade is blended through.

4) Divide the mixture between the pudding basins and place on a baking tray. Cook for 30 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

5) Set aside for a few minutes while you make the glaze. Heat the marmalade and orange juice in a pan or in the microwave and stir until dissolved.

6) Carefully turn the puddings out onto serving plates and spoon over the sauce, serve with vanilla ice cream or custard.
