  1. There are two ways?
    Steam or bake?

    I made two one in steam
    One in oven in a tub pan sitting in a pan of water.
    See the difference in 2 hours

  3. Where I live, we get vanilla (i.e. vanilla essence) in small bottles as a flavouring. It is expensive but not as expensive as vanilla pods. Normally recipes which use vanilla essence seem to call for a few drops.

    The bottle is 35ml. I just measured a tablespoon and it is near enough 30ml which is only 5ml short of the whole bottle.

    Do you really mean that I need to put almost a whole bottle of vanilla essence in this pudding? It sounds like an awful lot.

    1. What the recipe calls for is vanilla extract, I not sure how much vanilla essence you would use, it sounds like the vanilla you use is much stronger. Thank you for visiting our site.
