It may have the word “cake” in the title and you will end up with a cake shaped dessert, but in reality this is a recipe for an honest to goodness, old fashioned, winter warmer of a PUDDING! I made this for our Sunday meal and my DH thought it was so good he told all his work colleagues about it the next day! I think this pud works best with lashings of hot custard, but cream is good too! Use good quality ‘cookers’ (such as Bramleys if you can get them). This recipe comes from the 2005 edition of the annual BBC Good Food “Vegetarian Christmas” magazine.
