Honey Pudding


Prep time3 hours


Honey PuddingThis was another tasty surprise from Favourite Irish Recipes. It is not a pudding in the American Jell-o brand pudding style; it is a boiled pudding that comes out like a cake.

Honey Pudding is made from oats boiled in milk, flavored with honey and mace, and then thickened with egg yolks and lightened with the beaten whites. You boil it for two hours, which has the added benefit of leaving the oven free while you make your roast.

We had it with Irish Coffee at the end of our St Patrick's Day Feast, but it is light and moist and would go well with a strong Indian tea.
