Ian Cumming’s Merry Berry Steam Pudding…

Fancy trying Ian Cumming’s Merry Berry Steam Pudding out?

A blueberry steamed pudding oozing with a cranberries and cordial topping.



  1. Put the cranberries and cordial in a fairly large saucepan and gently bring to the boil. Simmer for a few minutes until the cranberries have softened and quite a bit of the liquid has boiled away. Add the honey and mix it in.
  2. Butter a 1.2 litre pudding basin.
  3. Pour the berry and honey mixture into the basin.
  4. Beat the butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time beating thoroughly between each one.
  6. Sieve in the flour and the mixed spice and gently fold it in.
  7. Carefully fold in the milk and then finally the blueberries. Pour this on top of the berry mixture in the basin.
  8. Fill a large pan with enough water to come half way up the side of the pudding bowl. Bring to the boil.
  9. Meanwhile, take a large piece of baking parchment, put a pleat in it and put it over the pudding. Then take a piece of tin foil, put a pleat in that and put that over the parchment. Tie some string around the rim and then use some extra string to make a handle in order to lift the pudding into the pan of boiling water.
  10. Boil for 2 hours, occasionally checking that there is sufficient water in the pan.
  11. Use the string handle to remove the pudding from the pan. Snip off the string and remove the foil and parchment. Place a plate on top and carefully invert it all.
  12. Serve immediately with custard, cream or ice cream.
