Ingredients needed for Steam Pudding
Before we start with the step-by-step process of making steam pudding, let us first take a look at the ingredients you'll need.
The ingredients are:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
Steps To Take
Step 1: Preparing the Pudding Mixture
Start by combining the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Ensure you sieve the dry ingredients before mixing. Set the mixture aside. Next, cream the sugar and the butter together in a separate bowl until they are fluffy. Once it's done, add the honey and mix until it's properly blended. Add the egg and continue to mix until the mixture is consistent.
Step 2: Mixing Dry Ingredients with Butter Cream
After creaming the butter and sugar, it's time to mix them with the dry ingredients. This step consists of adding the dry mixture into the butter cream, alternating with the milk. Mix the ingredients until the batter is smooth and consistent. Add the vanilla extract and mix until properly blended.
Step 3: Preparing the Pudding Mold
Now it's time to prepare the pudding mold. Grease a pudding mold with butter and lightly dust with flour. Note that we recommend using a ceramic pudding mold with a lid.

Pour the mixture into the pudding mold and level the surface using a spatula. Cover the mold with the lid or any secure wrapping of your choice. Wrap the lid/cover with aluminum foil and tie with a string.
Step 5: Steaming the Pudding
Next, place the prepared pudding mold into a pot with boiling water. Ensure the water level is well below the top of the mold. Cover the pot with a lid and let it steam. Steam the pudding for an hour and a half or until it's fully cooked. You can use a toothpick or fork to ensure it's cooked all the way through.
Step 6: Enjoying Your Steam Pudding
Once the pudding is cooked, remove it from the pot and let it cool for a short period. Once it's cooled to room temperature, remove the lid and upturn your mold onto your serving plate. Enjoy your freshly made steam pudding, perfect for any occasion.
