Serves 6


Cooking Time 45 mins

Prep Time 15 mins



300g butter

300g sugar

6 large free-range eggs

300g self-raising flour

75g stem ginger

Zest of 2 large lemons

Maple syrup (1 generous dash per mould)

1 punnet of blackberries (or minimum 24 blackberries)

Double cream to serve


Eqpt. 6 dariole moulds (small metal cups) or deep ramekin dishes.




Preheat the oven to 180C/gas mark 4.


Cream the butter & sugar in a mixing bowl.


Then add the eggs, one at a time, followed by the flour, ginger & lemon zest, until you have a thick batter.


Put to one side.


Place a generous dash of maple syrup & 3-4 blackberries in the bottom of 6 greased dariole moulds (or similar).


Spoon the batter over the blackberries until the moulds are two-thirds full.


Loosely cover the moulds with tin foil & place in a roasting tray.


Pour hot water into the tray so that it comes halfway up the moulds.


Bake for 45 mins.


To serve, remove the puddings from their moulds by inverting on a plate & pour over the double cream.


Nigel's Top Tips

  • It's crucial to grease your moulds well (I used butter), to help them come out.

  • I experimented with raspberries & halved cherries.  Chopped plums might work but blanch them halved first.
