Sago Pudding

Serves 2

500 ml milk
60 ml sago 
45 ml sugar 
30 ml butter 
5 ml cinnamon 
zest of 1 orange 
pinch of nutmeg 
2 eggs, separated 
15 ml apricot jam



  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. 
  2. Gently heat milk, sago and sugar in an AMC 20 cm Gourmet Low. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook over a low heat until thickened and the sago is translucent. Keep stirring all the while. This should take approximately 20 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in half the butter, the orange zest and spices. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Beat the egg yolks and stir into the mixture.
  4. Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks and fold into the mixture too.
  5. Dollop with apricot jam and remaining butter. Bake  in the oven for 35 minutes. Serve with double thick cream or custard. 


  • If you do not have a Gourmet unit, pour sago mixture into a 20 cm buttered baking dish and bake as above.
  • Remember to wipe off all the sticky residue from the rim of your Gourmet Low before putting it in the oven.
