This is the dessert mold that steams the famous figgy pudding or Christmas plum pudding (or chocolate pudding, or carrot pudding...). The 4-1/2 cup tinned pudding mold is deep with fluted sides and a decorative swirled bottom which becomes the top when unmolded. A cylindrical cone inside helps cook the dense pudding more evenly. A handle on the lid allows you to pull the pudding out of the simmering water in which it steams. The pudding should emerge looking elegant, waiting for a hard sauce to be ladled over it and served to eagerly expectant guests. Be sure to butter the mold and sprinkle it with sugar before filling it.
