"2 pint (supposedly) pudding basins with lids"
11 November 2015
I bought this set of three pudding basins to make my Christmas pudding. I followed Delia's recipe but it didn't all fit in the bowl and when I measured the bowl with water it measures less than1.2 litres, I measured it a few times to check. I used it but didn't put all my mixture in. During cooking a considerable amount of fat came out of the pudding into the steamer even though I tied foil around it with string. I don't think this should happen although probably better for us to eat!. I love lakeland and your products but am rather disappointed with these. Realise they are inexpensive.
A note from the team
We think it's the fact you're measuring a liquid(water) and making the comparison that the volume of cake mixture will be the same.Cake mixture will fill the area more fuller than water so it's best to adjust you mixture slightly or find a use for the leftover mixture. We hope this helps.
