I don't have a steamer, can I use something else?
If you don't have a steamer a large pan with a lid can be used. It is vital though to keep the water level high enough that the pudding doesn't burn and low enough that no water gets into the pudding when it's cooking. This is generally why steamers were used as the water isn't in direct contact, it is just easier and doesn't require you to keep such a close eye on it. The Cookit Team

I had to make a "delicious" world war two recipe for my homework. I thought that in the war nothing was delicious so I considered just bringing in a stale loaf of bread. Then I found this recipe, which is one of the only "delicious" world war two puddings ever!

is it easy to make and nice? Steamed puddings are not as easy as say a normal cake you bake in the oven but many of our young cooks have managed to make this dish. As for taste, it is a nice one as Wartime recipes go, of course there was no chocolate and little sugar to use. Our cooks have left both good and bad comments, it is less sugary and chocolatey than a modern chocolate cake but we thought it was nice. The Cookit Team

It does not work at all and why would you put carrots in it? We have cooked this reliably many times and the recipe usually works very well. The trickiest part is managing the steamer. If you let us know what problem you had, we might be able to help. This is a wartime recipe and so carrot is used to help cover up the 'missing' ingredients due to rationing. Cooks had to be very inventive and use what was available. This pudding has a lovely texture and the carrot makes it very moist. It is by far the healthiest version of a chocolate pudding we have seen. It is also true that it isn't as rich or chocolatey as a modern pudding would be- they just didn't have the ingredients.

I made this for my year 7 and 8 pupils as we were supporting a play about WW2. The recipe worked really well. My classes were mostly pleasantly surprised with the pudding and some absolutely loved it! We all agreed, just a little more cocoa powder would make it a viable, healthy pudding for today. Thank you. Thank you very much for letting us know about the activities you have been doing. We love to hear how our recipes are received. The Cookit Team

What exactly do you mean when you mention serving this with "custard"? I live in the US and would like to try this recipe but am not sure what the custard part is...
Name: Memy 27th January 2015
Hi Joni, Custard comes in a tin about the size of a soup can. You can either buy it ready made or as a powder. Birds Eye Custard Powder is my favorite. I get it at either HEB or Target. Just add milk and a bit of sugar and cook it on the stove top. You can either make it thick like a chocolate pudding or runnier like a thin sweet sauce.

In WW2 would people make this?
Name: Brittany 27th February 2015
hi i am doing a school project and i was wondering what are some good recipes to make from world war 2 i need at least 15 good ones! Please contact me as soon as possible!
Name: John 3rd April 2015
Sorry Jerry J. but it looks like you are outvoted. ๐Ÿ˜„

Old fashioned it may be but this pudding made and steamed properly is delicious. Carrots were not only added because of the 'missing ingredients' though but because carrots are naturally sweet and also when cooked provide not only bulk but are a really subtle flavor to this recipe. I've made it for years and all my family love it.

I hated this cake needs 500 more grams of sugar and 1000 more grams of COCO ! (if ya kno what I mean ;))

I must ask my mother if she remembers this version of the pudding during the war. She does make it, even today, served with lashings of chocolate custard, but there's no carrot in it.
