Friday’s Favs…a vintage pudding steamer and other kitchen stuff


Do you know what this is?

The rather odd looking, tin object with the lid and the red Fisko sign is a pudding steamer!

I’ve seen them in antique stores and in a few blog photos, but until I did some research online

I thought it was some kind of baking pan, similar to a bundt pan.

Well, I was wrong. 

It’s a pudding steamer for things like plum pudding, figgy pudding, and Christmas pudding.

It cooks in a water bath on the stove top, not in the oven.

I found mine, not at some kitchen store, or in an antique shop, but at the G.W. for cheap, cheap, cheap!

I love to cook and am excited to try this out.

I think I’ll start off with this recipe.

(I’m picturing the dining room scene from Downton Abbey

where the elderly Countess of Grantham is enjoying the Christmas pudding.)


In other kitchen news, I’ve changed up a little something on my counter, gathering my wood cutting boards, my favorite cooking magazine, and a couple of kitchen towels in the wooden box made by my handyman son-in-law.




Well, it’s almost Friday friends.

Hope your Friday is HaPpY and your weekend is blessed!

  1. My mother is is charge of our Christmas pudding each year. I'll have to be on lookout for a pudding steamer for her!

  2. That was the first thing I thought, too. Downton Abbey. I think you need to put a coin in the pudding and a piece of rag. One will foretell good fortune the other, not so much. Please tell how this turns out. :)

  3. You just made me even more anxious for season 3 of Downton Abbey! :-) Your arrangements are always so lovely Elizabeth and we are so thrilled when you share them with us at Inspiration Friday!

  4. You do realize that we all want some figgy pudding right now.
    And now, I have that verse from the song stuck in my head.

    And really liking your pudding steamer and the kitchen box redo.

  5. Great finds. I've never seen a pudding stemer before but now I think I should keep my eyes on the lookout for one.

  6. New to your blog today... I love the pudding steamer - that is too cool! Your kitchen looks lovely... can't wait to spend a bit more time enjoying your blog!

  7. Thankyou I have enjoyed looking at your photos SO much. Just lovely.

  8. Hi, Elizabeth. What a fun find... a pudding steamer! Your red and white accents in your kitchen are adorable! I'm your newest fan. It's always great to meet other Jesus Lovers! Please stop by any time.
