Making a steamed pudding may sound intimidating and time-consuming, but we are here to show you just how easy it really is. By following our basic step-by-step instructions, you will be able to cook this most impressive of desserts that is as tasty as it is simple to prepare.
You will need:
4-cup stainless-steel steam pudding mould
Premade steamed pudding batter
Large glass measuring cup or pitcher
Step 1: Thoroughly spray a 4-cup stainless-steel steam pudding mould with baking spray, making sure to coat inside of mould entirely. This will ensure pudding will come out cleanly from mould, once it is baked.
Step 2: Using a rubber spatula, scoop premade batter into mould, lightly packing batter as you fill to 1 inch from top of mould. Cover mould with lid, or cover tightly with aluminum foil.
Step 3: Place mould on top of a dishcloth in a roasting pan. Using a large glass measuring cup or pitcher, pour hot water into pan to halfway up sides of mould.
Step 4: Transfer roasting pan with hot water and batter-filled mould to oven preheated to 350°.
Step 5: Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours, or until set.
Step 6: Carefully remove roasting pan from oven, and allow water in pan to cool completely.
Step 7: Remove mould from water bath.
Step 8: Run a knife around edges of mould to loosen pudding.
Step 9: Place a serving dish over mould, and invert onto dish.
We recommend serving pudding warm, with caramel sauce. Garnish with figs, if desired.
