The Great British Pudding Challenge of Canary Pudding for March 08






Yesterday I made my steamed Canary pudding and nothing better for dessert after a lovely Sunday roast dinner *giggle*. The weather wasn’t too great in my part of England and a steamed pudding is such a comfort food to keep the cold out, as my mum would have said. I certainly required the use of lining the bottom of the basin with a circle of greaseproof paper to help stop the pudding from sticking, having used lemon curd for my topping. I did think of making lemon custard but Mr R requested good old fashioned custard this time and who I am to argue with that?



Canary pudding with lemon curd & custard

My pudding did take the required 2 hours to steam until fully cooked. With a little run of a butter knife around the sides of the pudding it turned out beautiful. The pudding had lemon curd oozing down the sides and the fragrance of lemon was wonderful. I think the fresh flavours of lemon were in keeping with this time of year when spring is just around the corner for us here in the U.K.

Looking good, Rosie - I could do with a lovely pudding like that right now!

Cakespy said...

You say you made this because there was nothing "better to do"...but I say, what COULD be better than making this ridiculously gorgeous and delicious sounding pudding?!? I can nearly taste it!

Emiline said...

Yum! That looks delicious. I love a good pudding, but my family doesn't. So when I make it, I have to eat it myself. Oh, well.
I think I need to join in on your challenge. I read the rules and everything. I might make some canary pudding.

Hi Ivy, you are more than welcome to come over and have some of my pudding :D

Hi Pixie, awe thanks sweetie looking forward to viewing your pud too :D

Hi Mrs B, with this pud jam would normally be served as the topping but I adore citrus flavours and thought this would be good to use. Nice pudding to try for the cold weather we are having.
Hi aforkfulofspaghetti, you are most welcome to try some of my pudding :D

Hi cakespy, it is very delicious if I may say so and a great monthly treat too :D

Hi Emiline, Oh it would be lovely to have you join the challenge. You can half the recipe and make small ones etc. We only have this sort of pud once a month and hubby loves his puddings lol

Hi Giz, it’s such a traditional English pudding from bygone years. I like to keep traditions alive and share the recipes for others to try and enjoy too. I hope you try this one out :D
