Yummy traditional pudd! Make it on a cold winters day and enjoy.
- 60 g butter
- 1⁄4 cup caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla essence

- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄3 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup raisins or 1⁄2 cup sultana (or chopped nuts)
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup
- Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.

- Add the batter on top.
- On top of the pudding basin put 2 layers of foil, covering the top of the pudding.

- Lift the pudding from the water, remove foil and unmould pudding onto a serving plate.
- Serve it sliced in wedges with ice-cream, cream or custard.
Delicious steamed pud recipe. I used raisins and a stainless pudding steamer that has been collecting dust for months. It was ready in an hour and a quarter, and tastes divine, the golden syrup gives it a lovely caramel flavour. Served it with French Vanilla ice cream and a little cream. Great Winter pud!
Thank you for this recipe! My family were delighted when I put this in front of them yesterday. I am now under orders to make it again tonight!!! It really is a fantastic winter pudding but could't wait that long to make it so it will have to be a summer pudding too.
