Orange Steamed Pudding
The general cake method in vegan baking is to use a wet and dry mix, similar to when making muffins and this allows for the magic of the chemical reaction to happen when using no eggs. You will need to act swiftly when all ingredients are together, stir with a light hand to retain the lightness of your sponge and decant as soon as possible into your prepared vessel. You will often see bubbles starting to form at the surface when all is mixed which is a good sign that your ingredients are starting to work. Mastering how to cover a pudding bowl can be a tricky affair with much patience required, however once done the actual making of the pudding is simple and alleviates all stress quickly.
This is a super dessert to serve as a dinner party show stopper or simply served sharing style to spoil your family. Either way a good dollop of plant based custard or cream works perfectly as an accompaniment and as the elusive steamed pudding is perceived as being far more difficult to bake than it actually is, will keep your guests vegan or non vegan fondly reminiscing about it forever.
