Bring the Murray River Walk’s Signature Dessert to your festive table this year!

     Category: Uncategorised

The Great Walks of Australia pride themselves on providing delectable, regional cuisine throughout their walks. So as a little Christmas treat, we’re sharing a signature recipe to indulge in over the holidays, courtesy of the Murray River Walk in South Australia.

Riverland Pudding


400g OR 1 loaf white bread, crusts removed

150g melted butter

225g orange marmalade

4 Riverland Navel oranges

Grate the rind from 2 oranges (save half for garnish)

Peel and chop 3 oranges

Peel and thinly slice 1 orange

3 free range eggs

500ml thickened cream

100g caster sugar

3 tbsps brown sugar

Crushed/chopped slivered almonds or almond flakes

300ml thickened double cream


Grease individual ramekins with butter and spray with olive oil

Place a slice of orange on the bottom of each ramekin

Cut bread into small (2cm) chunks and place in a large bowl

Pour melted butter over the bread and combine

Warm the marmalade gently and pour over the bread & butter mixture

Add the orange segments to the bread mixture and carefully mix to combine

Place portions of the mix into each ramekin making sure they are of even amounts

Beat together half the orange rind, eggs, cream and caster sugar

Divide the cream & sugar mix between each ramekin equally.

Sprinkle brown sugar over the top of puddings

Cook for 20 minutes

Gently toast the almonds in a dry pan whilst the pudding is cooking

To serve

Run a butter knife around the outside of the pudding. Place a ramekin, open side down into a bowl. Gently tap it against the bowl and slowly lift so that the pudding comes out neatly – a bit like an upside-down cake.

Pour a generous tablespoon of double thick cream into the bowl – sprinkle with toasted almonds and orange rind to garnish.

Then sit back and enjoy… and if this dish has you wanting more, take a further look at walking the Murray River Walk in 2019.
