A pleasingly light yet traditional pudding for wintry days, this offers all the pleasure of a steamed pudding without the unhealthy saturated fat in suet. Layers of sliced kumquats add a deliciously tangy citrus flavour.
Use sliced oranges instead of kumquats.
Kumquats are not a true citrus fruit, but are closely related and so, not surprisingly, they are an excellent source of vitamin C. Although this vitamin is no longer believed to have a direct effect in preventing the common cold, it does help to maintain the immune system and may well modify the severity and duration of infections. * Milk provides calcium and phosphorus – both important for strong bones and teeth – as well as protein and many B vitamins.
