DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all dry ingredients except baking soda and make a well in the middle.
  • Add golden syrup and melted butter.
  • Dissolve baking soda in milk, add lemon rind or essence and mix together.
  • Scald a pudding cloth and flour generously.
  • To do this you will need a piece of calico or a cotton tea towel at least 65cm in diameter.
  • Scald the cloth in boiling water then wring out and lay cloth out on a flat surface.
  • Sprinkle both sides lightly with flour.
  • Place the cloth over a large bowl and push it into the bowl from the center to form a lining.
  • Or you can use a greased pudding basin.
  • Add mixture, then tie up the cloth but not too tightly.
  • Have a pot of water boiling and place a plate, such as a saucer, upended in the bottom to keep the pudding off the base of the pot and add the pudding.
  • Boil for 3 hours.
  • The flour on the cloth should give pudding a lovely thick skin.
  • This plum duff is delicious with custard or cream.
