For my final BM post for the year, I made a sweet treat. Keeping with the theme of the week, here’s a steamed date pudding that is absolutely decadent and delicious. I steamed the pudding in Instant pot but it can also be baked in the oven like a cake.Instant Pot Steamed Pudding with DatesI wanted to make steamed pudding for this week, but I didn’t have a recipe or didn’t really know what steamed pudding was. Heard about it on one of the British cooking shows. But I thought pudding was a dairy based dessert like this one or this bread pudding.Instant Pot Steamed Pudding with DatesIn US it means a dairy based dish usually sweet like a custard or a mousse. Apparently in the UK, the word pudding refers to dessert course in general. So it could be a cake, rice pudding etc etc.Instant Pot Steamed Pudding with DatesI made this steamed date pudding yesterday for Christmas. It has a nice, soft caky consistency and is made with dates. I followed the recipe from here. I didn’t have 4 oz. ramekins and used 6 oz. instead. So I was only able to make 3 servings instead of 4.Instant Pot Steamed Pudding with DatesOriginal recipe didn’t have any added sugar, so I stirred in a little maple syrup. The pudding was only mildly sweet. Serve with some caramel sauce for extra sweetness.Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 95.
