Joined the website just to review this particular recipe. Not only is it quick to cook but it is amazingly simple to make. Works perfectly as a base for a more complicated pudding just by adding your choice of ingredients. I added Cinnamon, Sultanas and lemon rind to ours and everyone raved. My partner wants it for dessert every night now - Good thing its so easy to make!

This was my 1st attempt at making steamed pudding & I'm pleased to say it was a success - YAY! I loved it & so did the kids - next time I will do a double batch I think because my daughters wanted seconds. I'd never made steamed pudding before but I remember seeing the old Nanas back home in NZ use formula tins as the basin so I used one tonight & it was perfect for the job. Thanks Jen for yet another great little recipe :)
