Chocolate orange pond pudding

Chocolate orange pond pudding

This is my take on Sussex pond pudding – the classic suet pud boiled with a whole lemon inside. I use a whole orange instead and add chocolate. The juice from the fruit combines with the melted chocolate, butter and sugar to create an irresistible sauce that floods out as the pudding is cut – hence the title.

Equipment and preparation: you will need a 1.2 litre/2 pints pudding basin.
