This recipe given to me over 30 years ago by a dear lady with whom I worked and is a family favourite. Where the lady got the recipe from is unknown. I had not made it for over 20 years and resurrected it for my family a couple of years ago. The reaction was one of pure delight. We had it for Christmas dinner instead of the more traditional pudding. It can be rather hot at Christmas here in Australia. This dessert keeps well for a couple of days in refrigerator.
