method

1. Heat together the granulated sugar and water, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely.

4. Re-heat gently, stirring until the caramel has dissolved in the milk. Cool.

5. Cut the cake into 1 cm dice.

6. Chop the peel a little more finely.

7. Shred or chop the almonds. Brown them slightly in a cool oven, if liked.

8. Put the cake, peel, almonds, lemon rind, sultanas, and sugar into a bowl.

9. Beat the eggs until liquid and add the sherry, if used.

10. Mix in the caramel and milk mixture, and strain it over the cake mixture.

11. Leave to stand for 1 hour.

12. Stir, and pour into a greased 750 ml basin.

13. Cover with greased foil or greaseproof paper and steam gently for 1 - 1 1/4- hours.

14. Remove the cooked pudding from the steamer, leave to stand for a few minutes, then turn out on to a warmed plate.

Serve with cream.
