Davina’s Kitchen FavouritesLove, love, love these. There’s only a small amount of maple syrup as most of the sweetness comes from the apple and carrot. Who would have thought a steamed pudding could be so low in calories? These are light and luscious – a real treat. They’re best eaten hot or while still warm.

How to Make It
  1. Grease 6 pudding basins with a little oil. Put the raisins in a bowl and cover them with just-boiled water. Leave them to stand while you make the sponge mixture.
  2. Put the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into bowl and mix to combine. Add all the remaining ingredients and fold everything together until you have a soft batter with a dropping consistency. Drain the raisins and add them to the bowl at this point.
  3. Divide the mixture between the pudding basins. Cover each basin with a piece of foil or baking paper, making sure you fold a pleat into the middle. Secure with string.
  4. Put the puddings in a steamer over a saucepan or stand them on a trivet or a folded tea towel in the saucepan. Add just-boiled water to the lower part of the steamer or to come halfway up the sides of the puddings if they are in a saucepan. Steam for 45 minutes until well risen and springy to touch, checking that the water doesn’t boil dry. Turn out and serve with single cream and a touch of maple syrup if you like.
