How To Make A Self Saucing Rhubarb & Custard Pudding

Food blogger “Tales From The Kitchen Shed” has recently posted her new recipe of a stunning self saucing Rhubarb & Custard. We’re drooling just reading it, which is why we had to share it with you.

At least 6

Rhubarb Sponge:

  • 750 g rhubarb trimmed and cut into 1 cm slices
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 250 g plain flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 75 g butter melted and cooled
  •  150 ml milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs beaten

Custard Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons custard powder
  • 150 g caster sugar
  • 300 ml milk
  • 25 g butter

You will need:
• A 2 litre shallow baking dish


Preheat oven:
• 180℃ / 350℉ / Gas Mark 4

Sponge Batter:

  • Sift all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the milk, vanilla extract and beaten eggs into the cooled melted butter and whisk to combine.
  • Pour onto the dry ingredients and briefly whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the batter evenly over the rhubarb.

Custard Sauce:

  • Sift the custard powder and caster sugar together before sprinkling over the batter.
  • Use the back of a tablespoon and slowly pour the hot milk and butter over your pudding.

Bake in the oven for approximately 40 minutes until the batter is set.

Kitchen Shed Tip: Let your pudding stand and set for at least 5 minutes before serving as this allows the sauce to thicken up.

This looks like the ultimate festive comfort food and we can’t wait to try out the recipe.
