Re: looking for older steamed pudding recipes.

Basic recipe for Steamed Puddings...

4oz butter
4oz caster sugar
6oz self-raising flour
pinch of salt
2 eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons milk

Beat butter until soft and creamy, then beat in sugar.  Mix flour and salt and add it a little at a time alternately with the beaten egg.  Fold in milk.  Spoon into greased pudding basin and steam for 1 1/2 hours.

Variations....

Chocolate Pudding - omit 1oz of flour from the basic recipe and replace it with 1oz cocoa.  Sieve this with the flour and add to the mix.

Coffee Pudding -  dissolve 2 level teaspoons instant coffee into 2 teaspoons of boiling water.  Mix this with the milk and add to the mix.

Orange or Lemon Pudding - omit the milk from the basic recipe and add the zest and juice of 1 orange or 1 lemon.

Jam, Golden Syrup, Marmalade or Lemon Curd Pudding - follow the basic recipe, but put 3 tablespoons of Jam, Golden Syrup, Marmalade or Lemon Curd into the greased pudding basin before spooning in the mixture.

Re: looking for older steamed pudding recipes.

Beaten to the post! Was going to submit my grandmother's (she'd be 108 now- killed in a car accident at almost 95) for golden syrup recipe.

Enjoy the recipes you have!

Cheers, Maree.
