1/4 lb breadcrumbs
1/4 lb chopped suet
2oz flour
3oz castor sugar
pinch salt
2oz rice flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
rind and juice of 1 lemon
1 egg, beaten
a little milk

Cooking Instructions:
1. Wipe the lemon with a damp cloth, and grate the rind off it on to the top of the sugar. Work the sugar and lemon rind together with a broad-bladed knife until they are thoroughly blended.

2. Then mix all the dry ingredients together in a basin, and make a well in the centre. Add the lemon juice and egg, and enough milk to make a softish consistency.

3. Pour the mixture into a greased mould or basin, cover with a lid or with greased paper, and steam for 2 to 3 hours.

4. Turn out when ready and serve plain or with custard or lemon sauce.

Makes 4 to 5 helpings
