350 g/12 oz/2 cups dates, stoned (pitted) and chopped
45 ml/3 tbsp milk

Thoroughly mix together all the dry ingredients, then work to a light
dough with the milk. Spoon into a greased 600 ml/1 pt/2.5 cup pudding
basin and cover with pleated greaseproof (waxed) paper. Place in a
saucepan and add enough water to come half-way up the side of the basin.
Bring to the boil, cover and boil for 3 hours, topping up with boiling
water as necessary. Serve with Custard Sauce.
