On a cold winter’s night Mum often made a steamed pudding for dessert. It was an quick, economical dessert for a family of five. I think it also worked well for Mum as you could put it on to cook mid-afternoon and not have to make it during the tea time rush. This recipe she cut out from the Herald Sun is great because it gives lots of variations of the basic mixture.
This is my Mum’s alltime favorite dessert. I can remember sitting at the kitchen table tucking into a lovely bowl of it when I was a kid and I know Mum had been making it for a long time before I came onto the scene. I haven’t found her original recipe, but this is the same as the one she made.
