Steamed Treacle Pudding
December 21, 2020
A classic dish originating from the United Kingdom, Steamed Treacle Pudding or Treacle Sponge is an easy dessert to prepare in the Anova Precision Oven. This sponge pudding uses two forms of treacle - dark and light, the light version being known as golden syrup. It is traditionally served with a custard, or with golden syrup poured on top.
Treacle is also known as molasses in the US. If you can't get either molasses or treacle then you could use golden syrup or dark corn syrup as an alternative. In this recipe, you will also need a traditional pudding mold, also known as a basin (2 pint / 1.2 liter) which is available either in metal or ceramic forms. I used a metal pudding form with a lid, which steamed the pudding pretty fast. If using a ceramic form, check the center with a skewer and adjust time accordingly.
