  • 150
    butter, at room temperature
  • 120
    caster sugar
  • grated zest of 2 naartjies
  • 2
    eggs, at room temperature
  • 160
  • 1 1/2
    baking powder
  • 1/2
    ground cinnamon
  • juice of 1 naartjie
  • 1/4
  • 3
    golden syrup
  • golden syrup
  • naartjie zest
  • cream or custard


In a bowl, beat together butter, sugar and grated zest until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift in flour, baking powder and cinnamon.

Mix together naartjie juice, milk and 1 tbsp golden syrup and add to egg mixture. Stir well to combine.

Butter a pudding bowl (or a heat-proof bowl large enough to hold the batter). Add 2 tbsp golden syrup into the base of the bowl.

Spoon in batter and cover bowl with a round of baking paper and tinfoil wider than the pudding bowl by about 4cm all round. Tie a piece of string tightly around the lip of the bowl to secure cover, and place on an inverted saucer in a large pot. Fill the pot halfway with boiling water, cover with lid and simmer for 1½ hours, topping up the water if necessary.

Remove pudding and invert onto a serving plate. Serve with extra golden syrup, naartjie zest and cream.
