I made the xmas pudding and steamed it for 8 hours, my steamer is small and when the pudding rose the steamer lid was pushed up so it wasn't a good seal. When I tested the pud with a skewer the middle was not cooked, (the smear was covered in sticky liquid) so I put it in a saucepan filled half way with simmering water and a lid for 21/2 hours more. When I tested again, the skewer came out clean, the pudding was lovely and soft and well risen. Its now cooled but is shrunk and much harder, is it overcooked? Do I have to start again?
Is my Christmas pudding overcooked?
