This pudding is baked in a water bath to ensure it achieves the proper consistency and cooks evenly throughout. To prepare the water bath, just set the baking dish in a roasting pan and fill the pan with enough boiling water to come halfway up the sides of the baking dish. Test the pudding for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the center; if it comes out clean, the pudding is ready.
- Preheat oven to 150°C (approximately 300°F).
