Charlotte say’s ….
The pudding was delicious!!! I will be definitely making this again! There are also several variations on the recipe, which I can’t wait to try. You can replace the jam with lemon curd, marmalade or syrup. You can add a variety of dried fruit. You can also make a ginger sponge by adding 1/2oz of ginger to the dried ingredients and stirring 2oz of syrup into the mixture.
It looks amazing Charlotte..thanks for sharing!
