    Once you have located the necessary spices, this is very easy to make and gets lots of compliments from the grown-ups (though in my house not from the smaller people).

    I love this recipe to have a "smart" pudding at the ready in the freezer. I make it during the "glut" of plums & always take the spare when friends offer their surplus
