The Steamed Christmas Pudding is one seasonal special, which you will want to keep preparing all round the year! Indeed, this buttery pudding made of bread crumbs, eggs and plain flour has a succulence and flavour, which make it quite addictive.
The steamed pudding gets its extraordinary flavour, which is sweet, tangy and spicy, from a combination of ingredients like lemon rind, orange peel, ginger powder and cinnamon powder.
Eggs are essential to get the authentic texture, while a medley of nuts give you a crunchy surprise in every bite! Enjoy the Steamed Christmas Pudding warm, with a scoop of ice-cream.
