Grease and flour a 2-1/2-quart heatproof bowl; set aside. In a small bowl stir together 1-3/4 cups of the flour, the baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl beat butter on medium to high 30 seconds. Beat in sugar until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating on low after each. Alternately add flour mixture and milk, beating on low after each. Toss together 2 cups of the candied fruit with remaining 3/4 cup flour. Stir into beaten mixture. Pour into prepared bowl. Cover with greased foil, folding the foil over the edge and pressing against side of bowl.
Place bowl on rack* in Dutch oven; add water 1 inch up sides of bowl. Cover, bring water to boiling. Reduce to simmering. Steam 1-3/4 to 2 hours or until a wooden skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Check water level every 30 minutes or so and add boiling water as needed.
Carefully remove bowl from Dutch oven; remove foil. Let stand for 10 minutes; unmold onto a serving plate. Cool 30 minutes. (See Make-ahead instructions, below.))Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Icing and top with remaining candied fruit and peels. Serve warm or at room temperature.
If you do not have a rack to fit inside your Dutch oven, place a few canning lid rings in the bottom, then stand the bowl on top of them. Makes 12 servings.
Powdered Sugar Icing
In a small bowl combine 1 cup powdered sugar and enough milk (4 to 5 teaspoons) to make a drizzling consistency.

  • * If you do not have a rack that will fit inside your Dutch oven, place a few canning lid rings in the bottom of your Dutch oven so the bowl will stand flat on top of them.
Make Ahead Tip
  • Wrap and store cooled, unfrosted pudding in the refrigerator up to 1 week. To reheat, wrap unfrosted pudding in foil and place on a baking sheet. Reheat in 325 degree F oven for 30 minutes or until heated through. Just before serving, glaze the pudding and top with candied fruit.
