Victorian Pudding Recipe
This is a recipe for a very rich victorian pudding. Known by several names, the most common being Prince Albert's Pudding. It is a pudding dish filled with fruit such as raisins, candied peel and sultanas if to taste.
2 beaten eggs
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3oz sultanas (optional)
1oz candied peel
1/2 teaspoon ground mace
a little milk and pinch of salt
Cream the sugar and butter together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Then, beat in the eggs. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt. Then fold in the egg mixture.
Add the raisins (sultanas if chosen), peel (finely chopped) and mace to the mixture and add a little milk if the mixture seems too stiff. Place the mixture into a well-buttered pudding basin. Cover with a buttered greaseproof paper sheet and seal with silver foil. Steam the pudding for 1&1/2 to 2 hours.
Serve, whilst still warm, with custard or cream.
As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
