Ginger & plum pudding

The weather is so disgusting that I decided a spiced pudding was the way forward tonight. After foraging carefully in Tesco I decided that the most cost effective and delicious dessert would involve plums. I used a recipe from the BBC good food website and added an extra tablespoon of ginger for a bit more of a kick.

It’s as simple as greasing a tin and filling it with beautiful plum halves (stones removed) and sprinkling with brown sugar. The ginger batter is quite runny because it contains a lot of milk.


It takes about 45 -55 minutes to cook depending on whether you remember to keep your oven ticker on. Whoops. I don’t know how I’m still doing that? 

The pudding is pretty scrummy with a glug of double cream. The close texture of the pudding really goes with the sweet gooey plums. I recommend this recipe whole heartedly.
