family-friendly, home cooking, quick, simple, slow cooker
(granulated or caster)
raisins, sultanas or currants
butter for greasing
Fill and boil the kettle. Put a little hot water in the bottom of the slow cooker and start pre-heating it on High whilst you assemble the pudding.
Butter the pudding basin and lid.
Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Stirring with a knife, add enough milk to bring the mixture together into a soft dough.
Place the dough in the pudding basin and cover.
Place the pudding basin in the slow cooker and top up the cooker with boiling water until it comes about half way up the pudding basin.
Cook for 2 hours on High.
Remove the pudding from the slow cooker and turn it out of the basin on to a plate. Serve with brown sugar or golden syrup.
You can cook this pudding in a stove-top steamer, wrapping a ceramic pudding basin in greaseproof and foil in the traditional way.
