tangelo delicious pudding

I have just suffered through a week of vertigo due to an inner ear virus which seems to be sweeping Australia’s east coast.

I feel like I just stepped off a roller coaster. The dizziness is ever, ever present. Every moment.

So this dessert was a Sunday evening thank you to Jonas, who tenderly nursed me over the past week and patiently put up with my demands for pretty much everything a girl could demand.

Tangelo Delicious is a twist on the traditional Lemon Delicious: a warm citrus dessert with an aerated cake top and a gooey fudge base.

Perfect winter fare that’s so light it’s easily transferable to summer.

Tangelo Delicious Pudding

Based on a recipe from
The Essential Dessert Cookbook. Serves 4.

60g unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup (185g) caster sugar
3 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon grated tangelo rind
1/3 cup (40g) self raising flour
¼ cup (60ml) tangelo juice
¾ cup (185ml) milk
Oil, for greasing


1. Preheat oven to 180’C.

2. Brush a 1 litre ovenproof dish with oil.

3. Using electric beaters, beat the sugar, egg yolks, butter and tangelo rind until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

4. Sift in the flour and stir (with wooden spoon) until just combined.

5. Add tangelo juice and milk and stir until combined.

6. In a new (very clean, very dry) bowl, beat egg whites with (very clean, very dry) electric beaters until firm peaks form.

7. Fold in pudding mixture with a metal spoon until just combined. You want to try and keep as much air as possible.

8. Spoon into the ovenproof dish and place in a large, deep baking dish. Pour boiling water into baking dish until it comes one-third of the way up the side of the pudding dish (this will keep an even temperature and retain moisture during cooking).

9. Bake for 40 minutes. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm.

Using the tangelo, this is my entry to Weekend Herb Blogging.

Tangelos (Citrus paradisi × Citrus reticulata) are deliberate and accidental hybrids of tangerines (orange x mandarin) and pomelos (grapefruit).

Thought to have originated in South East Asia more than 3,500 years ago, they are one of the most juiciest of the citrus fruits with a refreshing acidity and tapered “nippled” shape.

Their soft skin makes them easier to peel than oranges and some of the more well-known cultivars include K–Early, Minneola, Nova, Orlando, Seminole, Thornton, Alamoen and Ugli.

  1. Oh Anna, so sorry to hear you've been feeling crummy. Hope you're better now. The dessert sounds delicious.

  2. Your tangelo pudding looks lovely - I'm going to try it. Great blog.

  3. Have only just really discovered tangelos and so when I found this I was most excited to try it.

    I have made lots of lemon/lime delicious puddings before but never tangelo... and it was delicious indeed!


Thanks for saying hello. It's great to know there are people out there in cyberspace!
