Easy Clementine Upside Down Puddings

Easy Clementine Upside Down Puddings

I can’t take all the credit for these Easy Clementine Upside Down Puddings. The recipe came, many many moons ago, from somewhere off the internet. However I’m so sorry to say I have no idea where from and I’ve messed around with the recipe over the years as well and made it super easy – so I’m sorry but I can’t even credit the actual original creator!!

They are individual, pretty, delicious and fresh, I LOVE them. They are so moist and so easy to make. The syrup over the top is just the perfect finishing touch!

PLEASE Make these as individuals in a muffin time and pour the lovely syrup over the top, oh my, divine! You will make these individual Clementine Upside Down Puddings time and time again! They really are flipping delicious, just make sure you GREASE THE TIN really really well and be a little gentle extracting them!

And do you know what you should really have a Clementine Cocktail to go with them, yes you should!!

If you prefer the more traditional Pineapple Upside-down Pudding / Cake great for feeding families and the masses have a look at mine, it’s easy and tasty! These Clementine ones I just are a tad more refined and grown up, does that make sense? Anyhow have a look

Please have a try and let me know how you get on…..

Thanks Clare x
