Steamed puddings in large quantities

Can someone please give me some advice? I have been asked to make a large quantity of individual steamed puddings (syrup) and I'm not sure how to do it. Don't want to do a traybake - they need to be cooked seperately. I can find the little tins for the puddings themselves but wonder what would be the 'caterers' way iof cooking (steaming) a lot at the same time.

Steamed puddings

Layer them up on something like pressure cooker trivets or the removable bases from cake tins. You can do it on plates, but it is easier on something flat.

Depending on the height of the saucepan you might get three layers.

Or use an old-fashioned three section steamer. Or use a pressure cooker. Or put them in a bain marie in the oven covered with foil.

Further tip. Cling film is easier to put on steamed puddings than foil. It expands during cooking very well.

I used to do 12 at a time in my three layered electric steamer.

Thanks - does it make any difference whether you use plastic or metal containers to the result?

I've never used a pressure cooker - but they'd presumably cook more quickly if I can borrow one? Like the idea of a bain marie in the oven - and thanks for the tip about cling film.

lots of puddings to steam


take my hat off to you for even thinking of borrowing a pressure cooker - they scare me to death.

personally, i would and do use the bain marie method, put in a big roasting tin half fill the tin with boiling water from the kettle and steam for about an hour.

Personally, i wouldn't use cling film, i would pleat tin foil and scrunch it around the rim - i never bother tying up with string, just a good scrunch with a pleat.

I'm terrified of pressure cookers too, Sam!

I also dislike cling film. Won't even give it house space.
