This is my friend Felicity's mother's pudding recipe. She's been making it for over 40 years. They boil it in metal drums on the barbie outside and make a big family day out of it. Great served with Brandy Custard
This mixture can be steamed instead of boiled. Fill into a well-greased pudding basin to within 5cm of top. Cover securely with 2 layers of greased greaseproof paper and one of aluminium foil. Secure firmly with string. Place in steamer or large saucepan with sufficient boiling water to come halfway up basin. Water should boil gently, yet steadily; replenish with more boiling water when necessary. The lid of steamer or saucepan should fit securely. Re-steam 2 hours on day of serving.
@MJNabz - I use Sweet Sherry instead of rum, and everyone seems to like it better. You can also use Dry Sherry. - 17 Dec 2017
Altered ingredient amounts. That sounds great! but...Is there anything I can use instead of rum? - 15 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
