I am a lover of steamed pud from way back, so I'm up again for The Great British Pudding Challenge hosted by Rosie from Rosie Bakes a Peace of Cake. This month's challenge is Canary Pudding, so named for its soft yellow sponge and lemon flavouring.
This pudding could have golden syrup, jam or lemon curd on top. I chose blood orange marmalade as a tart contrast to the sweetness of the sponge.
The verdict - a light, fluffy sponge pudding that is miles away from the much-maligned reputation of puddings as stodgy. In this photograph, the pud is accompanied by vanilla yoghurt, but icecream, cream or custard would go equally as well as an accompaniment. It could also be served hot or cold, perhaps as an alternative on the afternoon tea tray. Delish!
