Delicious pudding. Had enough pudding mix and baked half of it in the oven. both were divine, but the pudding took 1st place. My children loved it! we had it for Christmas dinner with amagimix custard.

Was a good pudding. I precooked it (a week early) and steamed again on the day. My pudding tin didn't fit in the steamer so steamed it in a pot.


Does this pudding work if it is cooked, stored and reheated on the day?


Absolutely Delicious! Worked perfectly.
