Country Spice Pudding

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by CountryMama

I love making this when I want a warm, spicy dessert. It bakes into a cake with sauce underneath. The best part is that there's only one bowl to wash afterwards! This is from the Victorian Epicure Recipe Book - Volume 1.

I cooked it at 200C for 40 mins and it was delicious. It more comfortably serves 6 than 8 but other than that the recipe worked as stated. Don't be conned by the tiny amount of batter - it really does need that size casserole dish! We had it after spicy Indian food and it was lush. Next time we will try it with vanilla ice-cream. Thanks for posting!
