Makes 2 x 2 pint puddings
- Mix all the ingredients together very thoroughly and leave covered overnight. Give another stir and fill into pudding bowls. Cover with a double thickness parchment paper. Tie it tightly under the rim with butchers twine.
- Bring to almost a simmer on the hob and transfer it to the oven for 4 hours at 140c. The water should come half way up the side of the bowl. Check every hour or so and top up with boiling water if necessary. After 5 hours remove the pudding from the pot. Allow to get cold and re-cover with new parchment paper. Store in a cool dry place until required.
- On the day of use, steam for a further 2 hours on a very gently heat with the lid of the pot on. Turn the pudding out of the bowl onto a very hot serving plate, pour over some whiskey or brandy and ignite. Serve immediately on very hot plates with Avonmore Dessert Cream
