Daring Bakers do Suet Puddings

Being British, this was probably the easiest challenge for us we've done so far! We’ve made steamed summer puddings and traditional steak and kidney so far, with more to come I suspect....

As it’s not really “summer” here however you look at it, I made the mini puddings with frozen berries, and a vegetable suet. I added plenty of sugared water and jam to the berries as these can come out weirdly dry very easily.

The steak and kidney one is a proper, giant thing that’ll feed 5 comfortably, made in a large pudding basin with 2 pounds of steak and 2 lambs kidneys it takes 2 hours to steam through, but well worth waiting for!

I'll add some photos to this when i have more computer time!

The April 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Esther of The Lilac Kitchen. She challenged everyone to make a traditional British pudding using, if possible, a very traditional British ingredient: suet.
