winter time= pudding time

this is the easiest pudding to make. it combines the magical three ingredients (sugar, butter & so good!) with peaches. as per usual this pudding is based on a recipe & then i have adapted it a bit to suit what i could raid from the pantry. my tweeked recipe was taken from  'Sheila's Pudding' which you can find in Jamie Oliver: The Return of the Naked Chef.

love ya work, jamie! :)

Pudding tonight was...
1 large tin of peaches (in natural juice)
3 teaspoons of sugar
125g butter
125g caster sugar
3 eggs
125g self raising flour

i'm not the only fan of the magical three ingredients!

1. mix the peaches, three teaspoons of sugar & 4 tablespoons of water in a saucepan at medium-ish heat. simmer for 5 mins until the sugar has disolved & the peaches are a bit soft

i've used tinned & fresh peaches- both work well & are just as tasty!

2.while the peaches are bubblin' away, beat the butter, sugar & eggs until fluffy, then gradually add flour & mix some more

3. plonk the peaches into a greased ovenproof dish. spoon the spongey cake mixture over the top

4. bake in the oven for 40-45 mins

have discovered, after lots of experimentation, rage & smoke detector dramas, that my oven only seems to cook evenly when i keep the door slightly ajar & don't pre-heat it before wacking in my baking     

5. all cooked? remove from the oven & serve either warmish or cold.

i couldn't quite wait- started hoeing in without bothering about icecream or cream! :)
