Plum Pudding with Hard Sauce and Brandy Sauce



  • 1/2 cup of Sugar

  • 3 cups Sifted Flour

  • 1 cup Suet (chopped fine)

  • 1 tsp Soda

  • 1 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 1/2 tsp Ginger

  • 1/2 tsp Cloves

  • 1 1/2 cups Milk

  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg

  • 1 tsp Cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup Molasses

  • 1/2 cup chopped Nuts

  • 1 cup Raisins (soaked overnight in whiskey)



Sift together dry ingredients. Add nuts and raisins. Add the milk to the molasses and suet. Combine the two mixtures. (I also add any of the whiskey left over from soaking.) Pour into mould (you may use jelly mould's or coffee cans, etc.), and steam for 3 hours. If not eaten immediately, soak a cloth in brandy and wrap pudding in a sealed container. (I don't use metal, as this combination will corrode some metals.) Serve with hard sauce or Hot Brandy Sauce.
