  1. 1

    Line a large steamer with baking paper and poke some holes through the bottom to allow steam through.

    Place over a medium-low heat. Cover and steam for 10 minutes until fluffy and cooked. Keep warm.

    Meanwhile, to make the glaze place the maple syrup in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a simmer.

    Cook for 5-6 minutes until reduced by a third, taking care as syrup will bubble up quite a lot.

    Pour into a small jug and set aside at room temperature to cool and thicken.
