I particularly liked the recipe for Chocolate Orange cake. Have a look for yourself below, it’s a pretty easy recipe to follow. I must confess that when Duerr’s sent me some of their lovely jams and marmalade’s through to try for myself I went for something even easier to start with! In this cold weather, I found there was nothing more satisfying in the morning than having a bowl of steaming porridge with a dollop of beautiful Duerr’s strawberry jam in the centre. I stirred it through for a ripple effect and a delicious sweet strawberry hit in every mouthful. This really set me up for my cycle to work, but as I say I’m not really sure if that counts as a recipe! I would definitely recommend it though!
Today we’re having a lazy day in the house and there is no flour in, so baking is out the window, but luckily I rummaged through the store cupboard and found a few packs of trifle sponges just begging to get the Duerr’s treatment, so I decided to make the ultimate lazy pudding – my totally made up Easy Berry-Orange Jellies.
Easy Berry-Orange Jellies
- Duerr’s Fine Cut Seville Orange Marmalade
- 8 trifle sponges
- Packet ofraspberry jelly
- Handful of frozen blackberries (from bush to freezer at the end of summer!)
- Small tin of evaporated milk to serve
- Make up the jelly as per the instructions. I used slightly less cold water to dilute and added the frozen blackberries instead so they could release their water as they thawed and help to set the jelly more quickly.
- Generously smear the trifle sponges with Duerr’s Fine Cut Seville Orange Marmalade.
- Break up the sponges and press into a jelly mould, adding some of the blackberries in each layer.
- Pour over the jelly.
- Put into the fridge to set.
I used my lovely little rabbit mould for the first time, and also made a smaller portion in a lunchbox so I can take some to work for a nice treat over the next couple of days!
Once the jelly has set firm, turn it out and serve with whipped evaporated milk with a little icing sugar for a delicious creamy topping that goes really well with the sweet, sharp flavours. Easy, but delicious! The rabbit shape looks like it’ll be more visible with an opaque jelly, but I still liked the way it turned out.
What do you use your Duerr’s jam for?
