All of a sudden, the kitchen fills with the aroma of oranges and cinnamon. And when I sneak a taste at the very end of baking the pudding, the flavor of orange has intensified. The grated orange rind simply comes to life in the last few minutes of cooking. Love this recipe!

I let it cool, then piled it into little glasses and chilled them in the snow.

Don’t be tempted to cook longer than 1 hour and 45 minutes. The pudding will still look wet, but take it out of the oven because if you cook it any longer it dries out as it cools down. And you want it nice and creamy!
