Introduction: Caramel Steamed Pudding
To make this delicious pudding you need to have the right caramel. Our caramel looks like a sea horse but this has no relevance to the recipe.
This is a wonderful pudding that you'll enjoy warm with a side of fresh yogurt or whipped cream.
Let's get started.
Step 1: Ingredients
Step 2: Caramelize Your Day
Take some of the caramel and smear a thin layer around the sides of your baking dish (we've used ramekins). Cut out some baking paper for the base of the dish and cover this with caramel. Your baking dish will now be coated on all sides with caramel.
As a side note, the caramel in these photos now looks like a pig with a stylish comb-over. Anyway, on with the recipe.
Step 3: Creaming Butter and Sugar
Cream together the butter and sugar.
Step 4: Eggs and Sourdough
Add the eggs into the butter mixture and mix in. Then add the sourdough starter and baking soda and mix together. Lastly add vinegar and mix through.
Step 5: Pour in Your Mixture
You dough mixture will now be poured into your baking dish. Hopefully you've still got some caramel left (it is delicious and I wouldn't blame you if you'd eaten it already). Take a spoonful and push it into the dough mixture.
Step 6: Steam
Place your baking dishes into a steam boiler and cook for around one hour. Keep an eye on the water level so it neither boils dry nor flows over in the the ramekins.
To make your own steamer place a wire rack into a large pot and pour in boiling water. Make sure the water comes no further than 1/2 way up the ramekin. Don't forget to put a lid on your steaming pot.
Step 7: It's Done
Your caramel steamed pudding is ready.
Serve this with fresh whipped cream or a side of vanilla ice-cream.
Thanks for watching.
