An unusual warming pudding for frosty winter days that I discovered in Jersey – I thought it never got cold there!
Mix the flour, soda and spice well together, add all the remaining ingredients except the egg and blend thoroughly. Bind with the egg, pour into a large pudding basin (remember the mixture will expand in cooking so leave space at the top). Cover with a double layer of greaseproof paper and tie with string. Steam for 3 hours.
Serve with syrup, custard or clotted cream.
