This pudding is traditionally served to visitors and well-wishers on the birth of a son. It is said that a family will serve it on the birth of a daughter only if they are truly pleased to have one after a succession of four sons. Large amounts are made in expectation of many visitors.

This is a highly aromatic pudding. I recommend it to those who like the flavour of aniseed. As it is strong, serve small portions only.
