Here's a lovely easy, quick and very retro recipe which you can cook in a mixing bowl like the vintage Pyrex June Roses one we have shown on the left below.
It's called Plum Duff , and the old clipping from a recipe book I have suggests that Sherlock Holmes loved this pud?! Perfect for winter evenings, Plum Duff has no added sugar, yet is a very sweet way to end your meal...
Plum Duff Recipe (Serves 6)
10oz Self Raising Flour
5oz Atora Vegetable Suet (you can buy this in a green and red box in the baking aisle - it is like little pellets of fat in flour)
pinch of salt
Pop all of the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl (not the one you wish to cook in!) and stir together
Add enough cold water to form a ball
Wrap the ball in the baking parchment, then place this upside down (with the wrappings at the bottom) into the Pyrex bowl.
Place a saucer on top and put in the microwave on full power for 9.5 minutes
Leave for 1 minute.
Serve with custard or cream.
If you want to be very indulgent sprinkle with brown sugar before serving!
If you wish you can halve this recipt to serve 2-3, and cook for just 4.5 minutes
This is not a pretty pud to look at, but it certainly is delicious!
