1pudding in a 1 litre 35 fl oz 4 cup fancy mould
This pudding is also sometimes called ‘Newcastle pudding’, ‘diplomat pudding’ or ‘Chancellor’s pudding’, though the connection with politics isn’t clear. Recipes also vary. Most recipes are tipsy puddings – much like a trifle – with pieces of sponge cake or sometimes even plain buttered bread or biscuits soaked in booze layered with dried fruits and custard. These are placed in a fancy mould and the pudding is then steamed.
