You can tell that this is a pudding from quite a few years ago. It’s a winter family pudding that is economical to make and doesn’t require any super fancy ingredients. You’ll probably have the ingredients in the kitchen cupboard so that means it can be a last minute decision to make and that’s great on a busy night. I made it the other night for the first time in years and it still got lots of yumms from my very grown up sons.



  • 1 1/3 cups Self Raising Floor
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup raisins
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 dessertspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 cups boiling water

Sift flour & salt together, add 1/3 cup sugar and the raisins. Stir in the egg and then the milk, mix to a smooth paste. Spread evenly into a greased ovenware dish. Put brown sugar and butter into a saucepan, add lemon juice to the boiling water and stir in. Heat gently until melted, pour over batter in dish and bake in moderate oven 45-50 mins.
