Steamed Sloe Pudding

Post by TillyBoo » 13 Nov 2006, 13:26

Ive just been watching Great Food Live on UKTV food and they had an email from a lady that had an abundace of sloes in her freezer and wanted to know if she could do anything else with them.

The chef Martin Blunos cooked a fabby looking Steamed Sloe pudding. Recipe as follows.... :) :)

200g Sloes
1 tbsp blackberry jam
175g unsalted butter
150g soft light brown sugar
3 large eggs, beaten
2 tbsp sloe gin
235g self-raising flour
pinch Salt
caster sugar, to taste
sweetened whipped cream, to serve

1. Pick over and wash the sloes, then place in a pan and just cover with water. Bring to the boil and simmer gently on the stove until the sloes break down and become pulpy.

2. Drain and rub through a sieve into a clean pan. Discard the stones, reheat the sloes and sweeten to taste with caster sugar. Leave to cool.

3. Butter a 2-litre pudding basin and place a disc of baking parchment in the bottom. Mix 2 heaped tablespoons of the sloes with the blackberry jam. Spoon the mixture into the base of the basin and smooth up the sides a little.

4. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs a little at a time, then add the gin. Sieve the flour and salt together and fold into the butter and egg mixture. The mixture should be of a dropping consistency: if it’s a little dry mix in a little milk to slacken it.

5. Spoon on top of the jam in the basin and level off with a spatula. Cover with a disc of buttered parchment, then with pleated foil and steam for 1½ - 2 hours.

6. When cooked, turn onto a serving plate and leave to stand for a few minutes before unmoulding. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.

Think I might be making that - would be lovely as an alternative to Christmas Pudding!

only mix two heaped tablespoons of sloes? that doesn't sound like much to me - what are you supposed to do with the rest?
