Chester Steamed Pudding

Puddings and Sweet Deserts

The name 'Chester Pudding' has occasionally been applied to a number of different steamed sponge puddings, including those given here, though the Lemon Tart version (see: Chester Pudding) is far more widely known.

Original Receipt from the 'Newcastle Journal' - Monday 11 October 1915

Ingredients: Three-quarters of a pound of butter or any substitute, such as margarine, one egg, three ounces of caster sugar, half pound of flour, three-quarters of a teacupful of golden syrup, a teaspoon of new ground ginger, a spoonful of baking-powder, and a little milk.

Method: Beat the butter and sugar to a cream, then beat in the egg, add the syrup, then flour, ginger, and baking-powder, with enough milk to form a soft consistency. After buttering pudding-basin pour the mixture into it, leaving room for the puling to rise. Twist a piece off greased paper over the top, and steam for two hours and a half. Turn out, dust with sugar and serve.
