“This is from New Settlement Cookbook. Great thing about this steamed pudding recipe is the fiber from the oatmeal and the lack of suet. There's even iron-rich molasses. Heck, it's so healthy, you can eat it for breakfast . Makes a nice change from regular oatmeal. Of course, the sauce will make it less like breakfast. The original recipe uses dates, but you can use other dried fruits. Depending on the fruit you use, it won't be as sweet and will be chunkier, as dates sort of melt away when cooked. To steam, put molds or ramekins onto a steamer insert. Cover the molds with greased aluminum foil. Make sure to replenish the water as it boils away.”
