Peach and orange puddings with orange-blossom syrup


You'll need

½ orange, unpeeled, coarsely chopped 3 eggs, separated 100 gm raw caster sugar, plus extra for dusting 110 ml milk 20 gm butter, melted, plus extra for brushing 10 ml Cointreau 1 tsp orange-blossom water 150 gm (1 cup) self-raising flour, sieved 50 gm almond meal 1¼ tsp baking powder 1 tsp ground ginger 200 gm glacé peaches, coarsely chopped, plus extra to serve (see note) To serve: glacé clementine (optional, see note) To serve: fresh peach wedges and thick natural yoghurt   Orange-blossom syrup 250 gm caster sugar 3 oranges, juice only 3 tsp orange-blossom water, or to taste

Method

  • 01
  • Place orange in a saucepan of cold water, bring to the boil over medium-high heat and cook until orange is very tender (15-20 minutes). Drain well, process in a food processor until smooth, set aside.
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Whisk yolks and sugar in an electric mixer until thick and pale (2-3 minutes), then stir in milk, butter, puree, Cointreau and orange-blossom water. Stir in flour, almond meal, baking powder and ginger until smooth and combined.
  • 03
  • Divide glacé peaches among the bases of six buttered and sugared 165ml-capacity metal moulds. Whisk eggwhite and a pinch of salt in a separate bowl until firm peaks form (3-4 minutes), then fold into batter. Spoon into prepared moulds, filling to 1cm below tops (there may be a little left over). Place in a roasting pan lined with a tea towel, fill pan with hot water to halfway up sides of moulds, cover whole pan with foil and bake until risen, golden and cooked through (35-40 minutes). Stand in pans for 5 minutes, then run a small knife around sides of moulds and invert onto a tray lined with baking paper.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for orange-blossom syrup, combine sugar and 100ml water in a saucepan and stir over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Cook, brushing down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals forming, until light caramel (6-7 minutes), remove from heat and gradually add orange juice (be careful as mixture may spit). Return to heat, stir to combine, then simmer until syrupy (5-6 minutes). Remove from heat, stir in orange-blossom water and set aside.
  • 05
  • Serve puddings warm or at room temperature, topped with extra glacé peach and clementine, drizzled with orange-blossom syrup, with fresh peach wedges and yoghurt.

Note Glacé peaches and clementines are available from David Jones food halls and select delicatessens.
