Steamed Carrot Pudding for Christmas

My mother's father was born in England (Victorian era) so she grew up with Christmas Pudding on their holiday menu here in the USA. She continued to love it all her life. I'm making no comment about my preferences because this is her recipe and she loved it -- perhaps you'll enjoy reading what a Christmas Pudding is like.
I remember how embarrassed my mother was when her brother, Earl, reminded her that once, in about 1918, He was gone on Christmas day and GM had set his pudding aside. Mom found it and ate it. I chuckled to see how mad she got when he teased her about it 60 years later!!
