    Angela Sara's Note:

    This is a good stand-by, where you can ring the changes with the variations, really you can use whatever you have on hand. The measurements are in ounces for dry ingredients. It can also be steamed in a well buttered dish covered with grease proof paper and aluminium foil, stand in a pan of boiling water to reach 3/4 up the side of the basin, and steam for 1 1/2 hrs. This is from my well used, dog-eared book, Good Meals On A Small Budget.
