  • Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Effort: medium



  • 100 g butter, softened
  • 100 g golden caster sugar
  • 200 g mint fondant chocolate
  • 2 tbsp hot water
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 175 g self-raising flour
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 200 g white chocolate, broken into rough pieces, about 0.5cm


1. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.

2. Place the mint fondant chocolate and hot water in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Stir until melted and leave to cool for a couple of minutes until cool but not set. Stir the chocolate mixture into the butter and sugar mixture.

3. Beat in the eggs, a little at a time. Fold in the flour, adding enough milk to give a soft- dropping consistency. Finally, stir in the white chocolate pieces.

4. Spoon the pudding mixture into a greased 900 ml pudding basin. Cover the top of the sponge with a circle of greaseproof paper, seal with aluminium foil and secure with string.

5. Steam the pudding in a saucepan half-filled with simmering water for 90 minutes, replenishing the water as it evaporates. You could also use a steamer to cook the pudding.

6. Cool slightly before turning out and serve with clotted cream and a glass of dessert wine.
