  • 3 Eggs (lightly beaten)

  5. Finally, add the breadcrumbs and bottle of stout.
  6. Stir well, cover and leave to stand overnight. Transfer to a 3 pint greased pudding bowl. Steam for 5 hours.

To steam pudding in oven:

  1. Put two long strips of tin foil crosswise on work top or table. Place roasting tin on foil. Sit pudding bowl into the tin and fill with boiling water to within 1″ of top of tin. Then bring tin foil around to form a parcel, which should be airtight to prevent any steam escaping.
  2. Place in preheated oven at 150°C/300°F/Gas 2 for the same length of time as above. There is no need to top up with water during cooking.

Recipe Notes:

The quantities may be doubled if more than one pudding is required.
