  • Self raising flour 250g
  • Full cream milk 60ml
  • Egg 1
  • Plums 6
  • Caster sugar 25g, melted in a small amount of water or sherry to form a syrup
  1. Heat the oven to 180°c/gas 4.
  2. Melt the butter and put into a large mixing bowl.
  3. Add the sugar and egg and beat briskly until smooth, then add the flour and milk alternatively, beating until it forms a batter.
  4. Pour the sugar syrup into a well buttered baking dish and add the halved fruit, skin side down, in a pattern so it looks attractive when turned out.
  5. Pour the batter over the top allowing a good depth in the baking dish for the pudding to rise up.
