Tiny Tim’s Plum Pudding
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 2 hours
Makes12 servings (1-1/2 cups sauce)
Shouldn't be any plums in it. Despite the name "plum pudding", the pudding contains no actual plums due to the pre-Victorian use of the word "plums" as a term for raisins.
It came out great I had some dried chopped dates and some canned dried dates that I used I didn't use canned with the liquid. Other than that the frosting says one quarter cup of dark rum it is very strong tasting. I don't know if I use too much but I mistake but I could barely stand it but other than that maybe cut down the rum it's delicious if you have the time and patience it is a very good traditional treat it's worth the effort.
Yummy! This was my first experience with steaming a pudding, so the shape didn't turn out quite right, kind of like making a sandcastle that falls apart, but the cake was delicious anyway. With the hard sauce, I substituted the 1/4 cup rum with 2 tsp of rum extract added to 1/4 cup heavy cream, and it was perfect. My kids all liked it too, which is always a bonus.
This is an amazing recipe. Tastes great and smells amazing.
I've made a very similar recipe
I started making this last Christmas and ended up making it for several events because it was so good. I thought plum pudding would be hard to make but it was easy. The most difficult part was finding currants! The moistness and flavors of this are divine. It quickly became a requested recipe and I love making it!!!
excellent this is just like my grandmother made 71 years ago
This was horrible!! Either something is wrong with the recipe or I don't know how to steam pudding. It never set up, just looked like soup. I had to throw all of it away.
