Honey-Oat Pudding

Golden-brown like a big bowl of honey, this boiled pudding has a creamy, nubbly texture and mild sweetness like rice pudding.  The batter was made from boiled steel-cut oats, sugar, honey, beaten egg, baking powder, a pinch of salt, nutmeg and ginger, all beaten up and folded together with whole-wheat flour.  The whole grains, raw sugar (Rapadura) and the honey imparted an earthy, caramel flavor, while the baking powder kept it light.  Easy to make and surprisingly delicious.

This one was 1/2 cup steel-cut oats, boiled in 2 cups water for about 30 minutes, cooled, and then mixed with 3 Tbs honey, 2 Tbs sugar, 4 Tbs melted butter, 1 egg, 1 tsp baking powder, dash salt, dash nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ginger, and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. You pour it into a buttered, sugared quart-sized bowl, put a parchment circle on top of the batter, and wrap it up in cloth and lower it into a pot of boiling water for two hours. The boiling water should come about 3/4 of the way up the side of the bowl. Easy as... pudding?

Thank you very much. This is going on my to "bake" list. I even have all the ingredients. That doesn't happen much.
