A gorgeous take on an old traditional dessert. The crumb makes such a difference – this is yum!
This recipe is a fabulous, fabulous pudding to having cooking through the house. The aromas are like Christmas morning and it’s also genius because you can use any left over bread, jam, marmalade or whisky (rum) – aye? Never say I don’t look after you!!
The best dessert hook-up ever – Chocolate and Orange. A spoon-licker to be sure.
This is one of those simple dishes, that once it hits the heat of the oven and the aroma begins to waft around becomes a ‘is it ready yet’ intoxicating drama. There’s always a burnt lip, mouth or tongue in my house!!
Some cakes are made to be drizzled with warm custard and this one is no exception. Of course it’s also fab with custard and / or cream, it’s entirely up to you. However the silky-ness of the custard paired with this warm, spicy and aromatic sponge is just heavenly.
