Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding is my all time favourite dessert.

I’ve been eating this particular recipe for Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding since I was young and I hope to pass it on to my boys for them to make for their families one day.  Serve it with ice cream or cream!

If you remember your Grandmother’s Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding – then get excited – because this is a Traditional recipe – one that my own Grandmother used to make – and it is so buttery and delicious – there just cannot be a better recipe anywhere.  Best of all – it only contains basic ingredients – nothing fancy.  You will most definately already have the ingredients ready to go in your fridge and pantry right now.

The only negative about this amazing comfort food is that it really needs to be eaten within 24 hours of making it – or it goes meh…

Don’t be stingy on the Golden Syrup either – I always add two, sometimes three times the amount of syrup.  If you aren’t a huge fan of golden syrup (we can’t be friends) – you can have jam instead!

Serve the Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding with vanilla ice cream or double cream.  You can also make some home made custard if you like!

Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding is best made in one of those traditional Pudding steamers – but you can use a large noodle bowl as long as you keep an eye on the water level!

Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding


  1. Get the largest pot you can and 1/2 fill it with water and bring it to the boil.

  2. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

  3. Add the eggs one at a time and mix well.

  4. Fold in the sifted dry ingredients and milk alternatively into creamed mixture.

  5. Grease a large pudding basin with butter.

  6. Pour the golden syrup into the bottom of the pudding steamer and pour the batter carefully over the top.

  7. Place the pudding basin into the boiling water (without the water coming over the top)

  8. Steam 1.5 hours. Serves 6.

  9. If you don't have a steamer - place in a greased noodle bowl and place in a large stockpot half-filled with boiling water - works just the same. Make sure it has a firm fitting lid.

  10. Golden Syrup Steamed Pudding is not suitable for freezing.

  11. Leftover pudding can be covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.  Steamed Puddings are notorious for drying out so they really don't last long!
