Plum Pudding (Duff) Recipe

This is a recipe for traditional plum pudding (sometimes knwon as plum duff). It is a strange recipe, in that no plums are actually used.

Plum Duff (pudding) Recipe

4oz self raising flour
4oz currants
4 oz raisins
1 cup milk
4 tablespoons rum
juice and rind of a lemon
4 oz breadcrumbs
4oz dark brwon sugar
4oz shredded suet
1 cored and peeled large apple (chopped)
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 Eggs

Butter a 2 pint pudding basin. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Then add the lemon, rum and eggs. Then slowly add enough milk and stir to produce a dropping consistency.

Place this mixture into the pudding basin and cover with greaseproof paper or a pudding cloth. Steam for 3 hours. Serve warm with cream or custard.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
