Look, America, you are responsible for lots of good stuff.
But your understanding of “pudding” is desperately bad. It’s not just yellow flavour or brown flavour. It’s so much more.
And here’s an example. It’s rich, decadent, chocolatey goodness. It’s keto friendly, so low carb. And it’s … well, it’s brown. Shut up!
cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in the eggs. Stir the next 3 ingredients together and beat into the butter and eggs. Add a little milk, cream, or water if the mix doesn’t come together or if it seems dry.
Allow the batter to sit for 15 minutes before cooking to allow the xanthan gum to activate.
Place in a greased bowl, pudding bowl, or basin that can accommodate at least 1 litre / 1 quart, to allow room for any expansion. Steam for 1 hour, or microwave for 5 to 10 minutes or until the top is just set.
Allow the pudding to sit in its cooking container for 10 minutes while you whip up some cream or custard to serve it with.
