Steamed Jam Pudding

Steamed Jam pudding is real old-fashioned comfort food at it’s best. Although traditionally, raspberry jam is generally used, any sort of jam works wonderfully, so just use whatever your family likes. I used some lemon marmalade that hadn’t set quite as well as I’d hoped in the pictured pudding.

Ingredients

Method:

  • Grease a 6 cup capacity metal pudding steamer.
  • Pour jam into the base of the prepared steamer.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  • Add eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each.
  • Add combined flour mix and baking powder over the mixture and beat in.
  • Add milk and beat until smooth.
  • Spoon mixture over the jam in the steamer, smooth the top and secure the lid.
  • Place pudding in a large saucepan; carefully pour boiling water into the pan until halfway up the side of the steamer.
  • Cover pan, place over a medium heat and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low.
  • Simmer for 1 hour 45 minutes topping up with boiling water when necessary.
  • Remove pan from the heat, carefully lift the steamer from the water and stand for 5 minutes before removing the lid.
  • Turn pudding onto a plate and serve with Orgran Gluten Free Custard made as per the packet directions.
