About this recipe: This is a warm, rich, silky, but very traditional pudding, perfect with vanilla ice cream on a cold winter night. Try it it's almost guaranteed not to fail, and if you have kids they will enjoy the way the sauce slowly creeps to the bottom during cooking!

Loooovley dessert, though my dish was a little small and it bubbled over somewhat... very tasty though. All I would call into question is "serves 6" sorry but that was 2 very large portions for me :D - 01 Oct 2011

This is a very easy pudding, when putting all the water in i didn't think it was going to work but it was a lovely thick sauce. A little bit to sweet for me though but all the family loved it. - 22 Nov 2010

My mother used to make this when I was a child. I was always alarmed at the amount of water poured on top... This is why a large dish is needed! I used muscavado sugar for the sauce and it made it alot less sweet and more rich - 03 Nov 2012
