This is a yummy pudding, I know this, somehow I think its instinctive, I dont recall eating it as a child but I KNOW its yummy. So im trying to make it, its not a good pudding for an impatient person like myself to make, soaking... what IS soaking? surely it will soak while cooking... stirring? what is stirring?? i mean yes yes I know what STIRRING is.. but im not sure the recipe requires me to take the mickey out of it.. and there is alot of talk of "scorching" well im going to do a step further than most recipes say and cook it in a double boiler - this of course is not something I would usually do, in fact ive never done it before in my life - but I watch the cooking channel, the two fat lady cooks and Hugh Fernsley-Whittingstall make it look easy peasy.
I shall report back in a couple of hours. (well the recipe says 4 hours so i think 2 should be sufficient) IF by some nasty fluke of nature this pudding turns out badly - ive compensated for it by throwing in extra kumara and spud with the roast chook.
