The Hawker Family Pudding Page

These pages will contain recipes for English steamed puddings from members of the Staffordshire, Shropshire and Black Country genealogy mailing lists. I shall be adding more traditional recipes over the next few weeks. Anyone with recipes to be included should email me, Graham Hawker (puddings@greyhawk.demon.co.uk). Photos of actual puddings and scans of handwritten recipes from your great great grandmother make a great addition!
