Dear Chef James,
How do I steam a plum pudding.  I’m new at this.
Thanks a million.  L.

There are special pudding molds for making plum pudding.  You can find them online at or

I highly recommend using the special molds.

But you can put the pudding in buttered bowls, filling about 2/3 full put a piece of wax paper on top.
Cover the bowl with several layers of heavy duty foil and tie it firmly. 

You will need a pretty large covered pot to set the pudding in, add enough water to come a third of the way up the sides of the container. 

Cover the pot tightly, bring to a simmer and steam.

* Be sure to check the kettle once in a while to be sure the water hasn't boiled off.

     Chef James
