This is the recipe I have however this comes from Fiji. You can steam it in the crockpot. It still comes out great.

Purini–Fijian Steamed Cake

1 can coconut cream
1¼ cups of raw sugar
2½ cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ - 1 tablespoon butter

Melt sugar on a very low heat until melted and caramel – almost light brown in colour.Very carefully add coconut cream and stir on low heat till the caramel has dissolved completely.Cool the mixture.

Sift flour, baking power and baking soda.Rub in butter.Add the cold caramel mixture (start mixing from one end of the bowl and gradually work in).

Combine the mixture properly and pour into a deep tin or pot.Smear the left over mixture on some food paper and cover the top of the pot.Tie with a string.Tie the whole thing in muslin (cheese) cloth and steam for 1¾ hours (longer in a crock pot).Check to see if mixture is cooked before taking it off the heat.

Best served with butter warm or cold.

You can also add desiccated coconut or sultanas if desired.

Thank you for your recipe marcs - does the pudding come out brown in colour? I might try it today for New Years dinner tomorrow

Yes it does. The browness comes from the burnt sugar. I know in Fiji we used raw sugar and that also meant you did not cook it too much either or you would burn it. That is the hard part. Once you put in the coconut milk/cream and dissolve it, it is fairly easy after that.

Of course in the islands they cook it on wood fire which give it its smokey taste but it still tastes good.

I add mashed bananas and juice of one lemon to my mixture.
