    This recipe was a winner in our house. I read the comments before starting and seen that the flour step was missing.
    I added the flour in during the last step and mixed for about 5-10 seconds more. I also found that the mixture was very runny, so I added approx 50g extra of SR flour as well.

    Worked perfectly and we enjoyed it + our dinner guests!

  • Shame that a line was missing

    Shame that a line was missing from the recipe instructions because this is a glorious pudding.  A five star hit with my guests tonight and I'm sure it will become one of my favourites.  Don't forget to add the flour and spices and you'll have a winner every time.

    Terrible!!! When do you add the SR flour?? When do you add the cinnamon?? When do you add nutmeg And ginger? I was unlucky enough to read the instructions and cooked it without SR flour. Disaster!
