Step 1

Preheat oven to 165C/330F and grease 6 dariole moulds with the extra butter

Step 2

In a saucepan over a medium heat add all the ingredients for the syrup. Bring to the boil and then simmer for about 5 minutes until syrupy.

Step 3

In a different saucepan heat the jam and butter until the butter has melted. Take off the heat. In a bowl add the zest, ginger, flour, breadcrumbs, sugar and baking powder and mix to combine. Fold in the jam and butter mixture until just combined and then mix in one egg at a time.

Step 4

Spoon 1 tablespoon of cherries into the bottom of each mould. Save any excess syrup for serving. Divide the pudding mixture between the moulds. Place a square of baking paper on top of each pudding followed by asquare piece of foil, shiny-side down, then tuck under the foil to create a neat lid.

Step 5

Place moulds in a deep roasting pan lined with a clean tea towel. Pour boiling water halfway up the sides of moulds. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Set aside to cool for 5-10 minutes.

Step 6

To serve, gently release puddings from the sides of the moulds and invert into bowls. Drizzle with remaining syrup and cherries, and serve with cream or ice cream.
