Steamed puddings are a delicious dessert to make, in this video I show you how to make a steamed pudding in the oven. This is a great alternative if you do not like to use the stove top or a steamer.
The oven you use can be a steam or non steam oven.
Ingredients for oven steamed pudding
2 large eggs (140 grams)
180 grams self raising flour
130 grams sugar
100 g butter
40 ml oil
3 tbsp jam, you may add more if you like
Method for oven steamed pudding
Pre-heat oven to 175 Celsius
Put the jam in a 1 litre oven safe pudding basin, I used a pyrex glass bowl then put it to the side
Put the butter, oil and sugar in a bowl, whisk together until creamy
Add the eggs one at a time and whisk well between each egg added
Add in the flour and fold it in until smooth, if too thick loosen the mixture with about a tablespoon or two of milk
Spoon the cake mixture into the bowl with the jam, level the top
Bake in the oven for about 45-50mins until slightly golden brown on top and springy to the touch. Test with a toothpick inserted into the cake, if it comes out clean it is ready.
Wait for about 10 minutes and carefully flip it onto a plate, with oven gloves and serve. It will still be very hot
Great on its own or with custard or ice cream
