Butter or oil a pudding basin then cut as small disc of baking paper and press in the base of the basin.
Spoon in your mixture and push down with a spoon. I started trying to explain how to cookthe pudding but this video does a better job as it’s a bit confusing when you first do it!
You want to fill a pot with simmering water, when you place the pudding you want the water come just over half way up the pudding bowl. Steam for 8 hours.
Once steamed remove the foil and place it in a tin. When you want to serve it you need to cover it in the same way again and steam for 2 hours then serve with some rum on top and my vanilla cashew cream!
