by Christine Hammond
A good light Lincolnshire alternative to traditional Christmas Pudding.
4 ozs of all the following ingredients:
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp mixed spice
1 oz g chopped glace cherries
1 large egg (beaten)
Mix together flour, soda and mixed spice. Add all other dry ingredients and mix well together.
Add the egg and bind well together. (If necessary add a little milk)
Put into a large greased pudding basin, leaving room at the top for the mixture to expand.
Cover with grease proof paper and tie with string.
Steam for 3 hours
Lovely served with loads of custard or cream but especially good with brandy sauce.
