For the Puddings
  • 150g orange marmalade
  • 50g black treacle

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/gas mark 3.
  2. Lightly grease 4 x 175ml pudding basins or oven-proof ramekins. Spoon the marmalade equally into the bottom of each of the ramekins, then set aside.
  3. Put the treacle, syrup, sugar, margarine and oat milk in a saucepan. Warm through gently over a low heat, stirring, until it is melted together. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 10 minutes.

  5. Divide the mixture between the prepared basins or ramekins then smooth over the tops. Put them on a baking tray and bake for 35-40 minutes until risen and firm to the touch.
  6. To serve: Stand the puddings for 10 minutes, then loosen the edges with a knife and invert on to warm serving plates or bowls. Serve hot with fresh orange slices and vegan custard or dairy-free cream.
