Recipe was taken from McCall CookBook, the chapter on Desserts and Dessert Sauces, page 299 an edition of between 1950 1960s. The original recipe was Steamed Apple Pudding , but less apples was added and substituted with the raisins and mixed candied peel that I had soaking. However, the pudding was steamed in a pudding mold instead of in a bowl as the recipe notes, but method number 5 remains the same with waxed paper and the pudding mold top instead of the foil.

Pudding is quite delicious.

Thank you for that recipe. I love to cook in my spare time,
and I always try different recipes. I baked all the desserts
for our Christmas dinner at my sisters house. I baked five
different desserts. Cakes, pies, cookies.
