The Best Rich Plum Pudding

Tamarii's One day Challenge

The Richest Old English Plum Pudding

It's nowhere near Christmas as one would expect this recipe to appear, however in my opinion this is a dessert that can be made and consumed any time of the year especially on a cold and bitter day that we have been experiencing on a regular basis.

Plum puddings in themselves lie heavy in the stomach and are enjoyed more if eaten after a light meal, served with a custard, brandy sauce or a good dollop of thick cream. Me I use clotted cream , though I am aware that this is not readily available all over the globe.

This recipe does not require eggs, and before you knock it, try it.

OK to make a plum pudding that is rich , wholesome and most importantly digestible this is a recipe than you can truly rely upon.

Ingredients

Bread crumbs  8oz

Flour  4oz

Raisins  1lb

Currants 8oz

Suet 12oz

moist sugar 12oz [ dark sugar is usuallly moist]

mixed peel  2oz

quarter tablsp of Nutmeg

pinch of Cinnamon

a little salt

One and half teacups of milk

1 heaped tablespoon of BIRD'S concentrated EGG POWDER


METHOD

Mix thoroughly the raisins, Currants, Bread crumbs, Flour, Suet, Sugar, Spice , Salt , peel and the Egg powder.

Moisten the dry ingredients with the milk.

Pour all into a well buttered basin, and tie over firmly with a pudding cloth which has been previously buttered and sprinkled with flour, and BOIL for eight hours.

Once cooked serve with whatever you fancy and enjoy.

Good start to your challenge.

The time comment on this hub could be confusing - readers who don't know about your challenge could think that it has something to do with cooking times.

Why not create a small document with something like "How many hubs can I write in a day(8 hours?)? This is hub number .... and took me .... minutes" - then you can adjust the info in the spaces for each hub and copy-paste it into your hub ..... might save a bit of time and will rprevent confusion for readers who don't know what you're doing today .... :)

Unfortunately, plum season is not yet up in Europe, but I may have some brought over from Japan to try this recipe. Does it work with Japanese plum? :)

I know, because I found the actual word in nowhere in your recipe, but I just couldn't come up with anything else. :) I'm not a cook, you know.

Now, you made me feel bad, because you think I slipped up, but I didn't. :) My mom loves cooking and I take your recipes and give it to her. It's far better to get the best recipes from someone who actually knows what she's talking about than to dredge them from some kind of cookbook.
