Batter Pudding

One particular category of food that mum was brilliant at was puddings.  Not just any ordinary pudding but simply the most delicious work of art you can imagine.  They weren't necessarily fancy or exotic, but it was all the various tastes that were magical.  Many of her puddings were steamed and it is this method that keeps the pudding moist and very moreish.

Mum's Batter Pudding was one of my favourites.  Because of its title it's hard to imagine unless you've actually seen it.  It's so easy to make.  Try it!  I'm sure you'll love the unique flavour.


2 eggs
1/2 pint milk plus a little water
6oz flour (half plain, half self raising)

- Mix to a thick consistency and put into a greased pudding bowl.
- Steam for 1 hour plus (keep steamer pan topped up with water and avoid removing pan lid until ready to serve).
- Serve with butter and sugar.
