Mandarin Delicious Pudding

Mandarin 2

This recipe is actually Mum’s Lemon Delicious Pudding, which was requested by one of Honey Bunny’s workmates. He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers doesn’t really go for lemon, so I substituted mandarins.

1 Cup self raising flour
1/2 Cup white sugar
1/2 Cup milk (add more as required, in Mum’s words, the batter needs to be ‘cake wetness’)
1 tablespoon cream

Mix the ingredients above and place in a casserole dish.


3/4 Cup white sugar
2 Mandarins – juice only (put in the microwave for 20 seconds before juicing) or for Lemon Delicious, use 2 lemons – juice only – don’t use that lemon stuff that comes out of a bottle, you need real lemons. Go for a walk around your neighbourhood and find someone with a lemon tree to make friends with.
1 and 1/2 Cups boiling water
Sprinkle the mandarin or lemon juice and sugar over the pudding batter and pour the boiling water over back of a spoon over the top.
Place the casserole dish into a tray half filled with water and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes.
