Pecan Mabele Steamed Pudding
Iam so bad at taking fruits in my everyday diet and always wish to have it in any form. Just that I will not spend time to include fruits. Instead I crave for breakfasts like upma, idli, dosa etc. As long as portion control is in check. But I don’t. That’s another story about my consistency and discipline in my eating habit. I wish I change it, it’s high time. Recently I wanted to use up my rolled oats I have at home and also wanted to give it a try for smoothies. Should start replacing my high carb breakfasts with such smoothies. Let me see how it goes. This year my eating habit has been very bad with so much inconsistency as well as not balanced meal. I hope adding sorghum, a whole grain which adds a hearty, nutty flavor will give me the kick I need.
- Beat the butter or margarine and sugar until creamy. Gradually beat in the eggs, then vanilla essence.
- Combine flour, King Korn Mabele Meal, pecan nuts, cinnamon and rind, fold in alternating with the milk, until smooth.
- Reserve half the syrup and pour the rest into a 2 litre greased pudding bowls, or 2X1 litre bowls. Fill with the pudding mixture and pour remaining syrup on top.
- Pour boiling water into a large saucepan. Immerse the pudding bowl into the water; making sure the water comes up halfway the sides of the bowl.
- Cover the saucepan and steam gently over medium heat for 1½ hours, checking regularly to make sure that the pan doesn’t boil dry. Insert a skewer in the centre, if it comes out clean the pudding is cooked.
- Turn out onto a large serving plate, dust with icing sugar, decorate with strawberries and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
