Steamed Bread Pudding

The April 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Esther of The Lilac Kitchen. She challenged everyone to make a traditional British pudding using, if possible, a very traditional British ingredient: suet.

 For our date night this past weekend, we tried our hand at steamed pudding.  I must say, people say that romance is supposed to be steamy and on fire, but I think we might be doing something wrong.  Though this dish was terribly delicious and easy.  I did not use suet.  It wasn't available.  It would not be opposed to using it, as I have used lard before and it's a similar type ingredient.

I got the recipe from King Arthur Flour's Baker's Companion cookbook and the nummy sauce was thanks to Sander's.  I have no short cut for this delicious dessert, but highly recommend that you try it out.  We did have one pretty big snag and that was the fact that my seal broke.  I liked it so much that we might be on the market for a pudding tin.

  1. MMM - that makes me hungry just looking at it. I have to say it may be a traditional ingredient but I've never used suet! I think you can get a veggie version now - maybe I should treat the family to a good stodgy pudding?

  3. I don't know that I'll ever use suet. There are so many other fats out there that are tasty and easy to get my hands on. I might make some sticky toffee pudding this weekend.

  5. It was way better than it looks. Somehow it took normal chocolate chips and enhanced flavors that I didn't know existed. Now if I used the good stuff, there's no telling what kind of party my mouth would be having.
