Thick dreamy custard is spooned over dense currant-laden steamed pudding in this classic English dessert. If a traditional mold isn't available, use a 2-qt. ramekin. Place a piece of parchment paper slightly larger than the ramekin over its top and tie tightly around edge of dish with kitchen twine.
