  • Whisk the eggs, add the lemon or orange juice and the whiskey to the dry ingredients, and blend.
  • Leave overnight

Notes on Steaming a Pudding

According to China et al. (2019), the followings are things to note: avoid overfilling the pudding basin. Leave about 2or 3cm space between the rim and the mixture. The water should be halfway up the side of the bowl when you place the pudding basin in the saucepan. This ensures that your pudding cooks correctly.

How Do You Tell The Pudding Is Cooked?

Insert a toothpick through the foil and paper into the middle of the pudding. Jiggle the skewer to make the foil and paper hole larger than the toothpick and withdraw. If the toothpick comes out clean, then the pudding is ready. If it doesn't come out clean, put the pudding back into the basin to continue cooking for about 20 minutes. It's great to know that you can't necessarily overcook a steamed pudding. However, don't over-extend the time since although the pudding won't become dry, other ingredients may destroy it when overcooked.

Steaming a Pudding in the Oven

  • Pour boiled water in a roasting tin until halfway and put a metal rack on top. Place the shielded pudding on the rack.
  • Shelter the pudding using a foil tent to arrest the steam, then cook for about 1 ½ hour on medium heat. (About 350 F)
  • Repeatedly inspect the water as you cook and fill it up when needed.

Ways of Storing a Steamed Pudding

Steamed pudding has self-rising flour, which is an active element, thus target immediately after you've readied it. Being unable to finish it should not worry you. You can cover the remains using cling film and store them in the refrigerator. Normally, it should go for a couple of days but might become drier as time passes. You can reheat it in the microwave for about 2 minutes to warm it. It's possible to freeze a steamed pudding in an airtight package and then mildly reheat it if desired.

Importance of CBD in Edibles

It's pretty uncommon for you not to have heard about CBD or cannabidiol. Its proof is in CBD-blended edibles such as chocolate brownies, gummies, beverages, etc. Anecdotal evidence of CBD's benefits continues to grow every day. From improving sleep to soothing aching joints and muscles to reducing anxiety. Also, a contributing factor to CBD's popularity is the freeing up state and federal laws so that you can freely access CBD products. You can reinforce your post-workout smoothie with CBD protein powder or splatter CBD jam on your breakfast toast. Moltke & Hindocha (2021) showed that CBD improved sleeping disorders. Boyaji et al. (2020) revealed the efficacy of CBD in the management of pain.

Thus, CBD edibles are a great way to have your daily CBD dosage while enjoying a tasty meal. However, there's also the issue of dosage. It's hard to tell the amount of CBD required to be effective, considering that the amounts vary from person to person. According to Taylor et al. (2018), the general rule is to begin at a low dosage and gradually progress, noting your tolerance levels. Most consumables will have 5-25 mg of CBD.


A steamed pudding is surprisingly simple to create and also low-cost to make. You can steam the pudding in an oven or tightly wrapped pudding basin and placed it on the base of a pan filled with boiling water. Place baking paper upside down on the pudding.
