LH: 81 Easy Steamed Pudding

How to make a traditional steamed pudding

This website and podcast is devoted to living closer to our food – through canning, fermenting, growing or connecting with our food on some level.

That connection can include making something delicious from scratch.

Well, the holidays are a perfect time to do just that while also carrying on family traditions.

In this week’s episode, I talked all about making traditional steamed puddings, what makes them so special and why you should give it a try.

Now, if you know nothing about steamed puddings, let me tell ya…

They are NOT like fruitcake or custards. Not even close!

They ARE like rich, super-moist cake or tea bread that melts in your mouth like a souffle. If you have never had one, you are in for a treat!

I share my family’s top two favorite recipes with tips and tricks for making a steamed pudding even if you don’t have a fancy steamer mold.


You’ll Learn:

  • What is a steamed pudding
  • Why you really should try this
  • How to make it with or without a traditional mold
  • The secret to never messing up the steam part
  • How to do it once, with double the benefit
  • Two absolutely delicious recipes to try
