If you need to free up hob space, steam the pudding before cooking your lunch veg, then take off the heat. Covered, the pud will stay warm for ages.
Steam the pudding as in step 4, cool completely, then cover and store in an airtight container in a cool place for up to 2 months.
According to tradition, everyone in the household is meant to give the pudding mixture a stir as it’s being made, stirring from east to west, while making a wish.
