A tangy pudding, slow steam-cooked, a lovely light winter dessert. This one is flavoured with lemon but see my suggestions for ginger, orange or apricot flavoured versions of this beautiful pudding.
Ginger: sieve 1 level teaspoon powdered ginger with the flour and add 1 - 2 tablespoons diced crystallised ginger with the flour. Apricot: put 2 tablespoons apricot jam at the bottom of the greased basin and add the finely grated rind of 1 lemon to the margarine and sugar. Orange: Add the finely grated rind of 2 oranges to margarine and sugar and mix with 1 tablespoon orange juice instead of lemon juice.
