I got this recipe for a steamed carrot pudding with raisins and walnuts about 40 years ago from a friend who said it had been in her family for generations. Beautiful mix of flavours.
This recipe is said to be adapted from one that was used in the time of King George I. I am not sure about that but I do know it tastes really good even if it takes some work and a lot of time. (This makes two ~1kg puddings.)
An oldie but a goodie. You can vary this pudding recipe with different flavours, such as lemon zest, sultanas or other fruit. Serve with custard.
A luscious orange steamed pudding. The tangy flavour of this dessert coupled with custard, makes a perfect ending to a special winter dinner! The best part is that you can make the pudding in advance, freeze it for up to 2 months - then thaw and steam it for about 45 mins, until thoroughly hot!
A traditional chocolate steamed pudding that is best served with whipped cream and a drizzle of golden syrup. Makes a great dessert for dinner guests.
This old fashioned boiled plum pudding has your choice of raisins, currants or sultanas, soaked sago and bread crumbs, boiled the old fashioned way. Enjoy.
If you’re looking for one of the world’s tastiest steamed puddings, look no further! This unique recipe allows you to easily make a beautiful pudding yourself. Although steamed puddings may not be as difficult to make as other types of desserts (such as a Marbled Marquise), we’re sure you’ll agree that theses puddings are very tasty. If you have never attempted to make a steamed pudding before, you will be amazed as to how simple the process actually is. So much so, that the most difficult part is probably making sure the butter is soft and creamy, which can be achieved by taking the butter out of the fridge, placing it on the table and leaving it to rest at room temperature for a couple of hours until it becomes soft. Not too difficult is it? Alternatively you could use the already available soft whipped margarine, however this product rarely produces the same results in terms of flavour.
Excellent and easy dessert or snack. You just can't go wrong with banana and coconut. It's so tropical!
Serve this rich, moist pudding with custard or cream on any special occasion, but for Christmas choose one of the traditional butters or sauces (see footnote). To follow Grandma's tradition of adding coins to the pudding, you can clean decimal coins by boiling them and slip them in just before serving. Create slits for the coins with a thin, sharp knife.
Here is my mum's Christmas Pudding recipe. I know it's always a bit hot to think about this kind of thing at Christmas but once you taste this you know it will have been worth it!
