Ingredients

Raspberry puddings
  • 1/2 cup (160g) raspberry jam
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup (150g) caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup (225g) self-raising flour
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) milk
  • 40 gram butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (60g) frozen raspberries, crushed
  • custard or double cream, to serve

Method

Raspberry puddings
  • 1
    Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Grease a six-hole, non-stick Texan muffin pan. Line each base with a round of baking paper.
  • 2
    Divide the jam among the pan holes.
  • 3
    Beat the eggs and sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until thick and creamy. Fold in the sifted flour and milk, in two batches. Fold in the butter, vanilla and frozen raspberries.
  • 4
    Divide mixture among pan holes. Grease a large sheet of foil and place it loosely over the muffin pan, securing it around the edges.
  • 5
    Place a folded clean tea towel in the base of a large baking dish and sit the muffin pan on top. Pour enough boiling water into the baking dish so that it comes halfway up the muffin pan. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • 6
    Remove muffin pan from baking dish; stand for 2 minutes.
  • 7
    Place a large sheet of baking paper on the kitchen bench. Turn the puddings out onto the baking paper. Allow the muffin pan to sit over the puddings for a few minutes, allowing the jam to run from the base of the pan. Transfer to individual serving plates and serve with a generous spoonful of custard or double cream.
