Steamed Cranberry Pudding With Orange Marmalade Sauce

“My mom always (and we expect it most definitely) makes a steamed date pudding over Christmas and for New Year's. I found this recipe and would love to borrow her steamed pudding mold and try this for Thanksgiving. This recipe needs a pudding steamer. I hope this pudding will become a family favorite like my mom's date pudding recipe.”
