How to make it

  • Butter the underside of the top and the inside of a 2-quart steamed pudding mold or a 2-quart ceramic baking dish and foil to cover.
  • Sift together the flour, ginger, baking powder, cinnamon and allspice onto a piece of parchment paper or into a bowl. Add the salt and set aside.
  • Put the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat on medium speed until light and creamy, about 30 seconds. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix again until smooth.
  • Reduce the speed to medium-low; add the lemon juice and pumpkin puree, and beat until incorporated. Reduce the speed to low, add the dry ingredients, and mix just until combined.
  • Spread the batter in the prepared mold and cover the mold with the lid. If using a ceramic dish, cover tightly with the buttered foil and tie the edges with kitchen string.
  • Place the pudding mold or dish in a pot large enough to accommodate the mold with at least 1 1/2 inches of clearance on the top and sides. Fill the pot with hot water to reach one-third of the way up the sides of the mold. Cover the pot and bring the water to a low boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer. Steam the pudding for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, checking the water periodically to make sure that it is just simmering. (Rapidly boiling water will cause the pudding to rise prematurely and then sink). The pudding is ready when a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the pudding cool to room temperature. Serve from the dish, or unmold onto a platter, slice and serve with Chantilly Cream.

    Scrooge would certainly give Bob Cratchit a extra six pence and a extra lump of coal,if Mrs Cratchit served this to him on Christmas Day.

    Thank-you for this wonderful sounding Pudding.

    Kindest of Regards

    Love plum pudding, ginger pudding...steamed puddings (cakes of a type, actually) with hard sauce or lemon sauce take me back to the holidays of my youth. Old-fashioned goodness! I'm getting my pudding mold greased up and ready for this one!
