My family had Thanksgiving dinner together tonight and we started talking about the recipes at the table that had been handed down, in some cases for multiple generations.
This led to a discussion of my Irish grandmother’s suet pudding. It was the most wonderful pudding, cake really. I remember every Christmas we would go to her house and I soon as I walked through the door I ran for the kitchen. She would have this huge steamer kettle covering half the stove and I would sit and watch that kettle until it was finished. I think I drove her a bit nuts, but she loved making it for me. It was a sweet moist bread pudding with raisins and topped with a creamy lemon sauce.
She has long since passed away and every year I ask my aunt and uncles for the recipe, several say they have it, but can never seem to find it. So I am now on a mission to find one that is at least similar to hers. I remember the taste of cinnamon and possibly cloves. Has anyone seen such a recipe? If so could you post it, PLEASE?!?! I have found several on the net, but none seem to be close to hers.
