I used to make the traditional version of this but it takes so long to make and this is made in a flash. My Grandmother always made it the old way in a cloth steamed for hours then dried out in front of the fire to form a skin we got one every year for our birthday rather than a cake and we loved it, it was actually the highlight of the day. This one is a bit of a cheat but it's very good.
