Steamed apricot pudding recipe
Steamed apricot pudding
Because of their high fibre content, dried apricots are one of the best cures for constipation. But let's not dwell on that! This satisfying alternative to a traditional streamed pudding is extremely light, and the ginger essence gives an extra zing to the sumptuous sweetness of the fruit. (Serves 4)
Ready-to-eat apricots: 225g, snipped into quarters
Wholemeal bread: 5 slices, without crusts
Eggs: 2 medium
Ginger essense: 3 drops
Unsalted butter: for greasing
Hot custard: to serve
Mix togther the apricots and bread / Beat together the eggs, milk and ginger essence / Pour over the apricot mix and set aside for 20 minutes / Put into a 600ml greased pudding basin, cover with greaseproof paper and tie with string / Put the basin into a large saucepan and add enough water to come roughly half way up the sides / Steam for one and a half hours, checking occasionally to make sure the water hasn't boiled away / Serve with hot custard.
