pudding basin

Hi peeps, I would like to cook some pudding, and I picked up a recipe which asks for a "pudding basin" to cook the pudding in. I had a look on the net but I am not quite sure what material the container should be. I mean, I don't need to buy one, surely I can adapt some container somehow, what do you think?
thanks

when a recipe calls for a pudding basin ,these are the sort of basin that are usually used .
For most recipes the basin needs to be heat proof .

What recipe will you be cooking and what sort of bowls/ basins etc do you have ?
sometimes even things like clean empty food tins/cans can be used , but this depends on what and how things are being cooked.

Re: pudding basin

If you dnt have any basin then may be one of the most versitile you that you can get is a Pyrex basin , these are reasonably priced, heat proof glass , tough , last for years ( unless you drop them !!) and are generally a good buy .

I have a couple that I have had so long they have become a bit scratched !

Re: pudding basin

The Pyrex bowls that come with plastic lids are very handy.

Re: pudding basin

Cook in a roasting tin in the oven in a tray of water half way up covered with foil, you wont need to cook for so long so keep an eye on it. Oven temp 5/6..180/190
Clearly wont be pudding shaped but can be cut into squares to serve.

Re: pudding basin

Remember to get a basin with a rim if you are going to be tying the cover on! smile
