Golden Surprise Pudding Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4-6

225 g/8 oz golden (light corn) syrup
1 lemon
175 g/6 oz/1.5 cups self-raising (self-rising) flour
A pinch of salt
5 ml/1 tsp baking powder
100 g/4 oz/1 cup shredded (chopped) suet
30-45 ml/2-3 tbsp water
100 g/4 oz/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs

Custard Sauce, to serve

Method :

Put 45 ml/3 tbsp of the syrup in the bottom of a greased 900 ml/1.5 pt/3.75 cup pudding basin. Grate the rind from the lemon, remove the pith and slice the flesh thinly. Lay the lemon slices over the syrup. Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, suet, lemon rind and half the suet. Mix to a light dough with a little of the water. Roll out the dough and cut into four pieces, increasing in size. Roll out the smallest piece and lay it in the bottom of the basin. Spoon some syrup over the dough and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining layers, finishing with the final layer of dough. Cover with pleated greaseproof (waxed) paper and foil. Place in a large saucepan and add enough boiling water to come half-way up the side of the basin. Cover and and steam the pudding for 2 hours, topping up with boiling water as necessary. Turn out and serve hot with Custard Sauce.
