honey pudding




As I was experimenting with a few ingredients from the pantry today, I decided to add a liitle sunflower oil and semolina. The Semolina gives it a lighter consistancy. As a result, they make for a no fuss desserts with a mild honey flavour ...you could also top with a little icecream!    What will you be baking for the holiday period? 

 For 4 small baking pots (200ml in content)

350g Flour, sieved
2 Level tablespoons of backing powder
100g Fluid honey, plus extra for the topping
2 Eggs (medium)
1 Pinch of salt
160ml Milk
40ml Sunflower oil, plus extra for greasing.
4 Heap teaspoons of mixed berries for the topping
2 Tablespoons of semolina, plus extra for lining the containers

 How to make:

1. Combine the flour, semolina and baking powder in a bowl mix. Add the honey, salt, eggs, milk and sunflower oil and hand beat for 2 minutes to form a smooth dough.
2. Grease the pots with the extra oil and scatter with semolina until well covered. Pour the batter 2/3 of the way into the pots and set the pots on a baking tray on the second row of a hot oven at 180°C. Bake for 25 minutes until springy and slightly brown.
3. Allow the pots to cool slightly on a wire rack. When raised, add a teaspoon of mixed berries and drizzle with honey.

They look gorgeous! The berries make them special. Is the dough soft or hard? Does the honey soak in?

Deana, the semolina makes the dough soft. A little honey has been added to the dough, but the topping's honey also soaks into the cracks of the pudding without the overkill of the honey flavour.

It is definitely light Hester. Sometimes it hard to know what to name the recipes.
