This boiled pudding recipe has been in my family for ages and I don't know where it got it's name. It's full of raisins and chopped dates and boiled in a pudding cloth.

The Walters

Serves: 4 

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 250g raisins
  • 130g chopped dates

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:3hours  ›  Ready in:3hours30min 

  1. Melt butter and pour into 1 cup of water. Add bicarb soda to the rest of the water. Mix both into dry ingredients. Place in a prepared pudding cloth and boil for 3 hours.

Pudding Cloth

To prepare a pudding cloth, dip it in boiling water, then ring out (wearing gloves). Lay it flat on your bench and rub flour into the centre in a circle about 40cm wide, this creates the pudding skin. Place pudding ingredients in, wrap up then tie with string. Immediately submerge in boiling water.


You can use 1 cup flour and 1 cup breadcrumbs instead of 2 cups flour. You can add 1-2 eggs and use less water.
