How to make Steamed Dried Figs pudding with Vanilla Custard

  1. Prepare the custard first.
  2. Add the two eggs and the egg yolk in a bowl. Add in the sugar.
  3. Place the bowl on top of another bowl with gentle simmering water so as to resemble a double boiler.
  4. Bring milk to just a boil, that is bubbles should just start to appear.
  5. Immediately add the milk to the egg mixture and mix well.
  6. Keep on stirring continuously for about 20 minutes so that the custard reaches a fairly thick consistency to coat the back of a spoon.
  7. The important thing is that the water in the lower bowl should never boil it should only be a gentle simmer, otherwise the custard will curdle.
  8. Once the custard reaches the correct consistency, immediately pour it into a cold bowl, add the vanilla essence and salt.
  9. For the pudding, first sift the flour into a wide bowl.
  10. Add the butter and rub with the tip of your fingers.
  11. Then add the sugar and chopped dried figs. Mix well.
  12. Add the egg and milk and stir briskly without beating.
  13. Grease ramekins or any small silicon moulds,fill the pudding mix upto 3/4 of the moulds and steam for 15 to 20 minutes,till they are cooked and firm.
  14. Unmould to a plate and serve with the custard.

My Tip:

1. The custard requires patience so keep stirring constantly till the consistency is reached. 2. Make sure the water does not boil at any point while cooking the custard. 3. The pudding cooking time depends on the size of ramekin/ mould you are cooking it in.
