This may, or may not, be a Jamie Oliver recipe. It was in an email sent to me by several people.
115 grams suet
120 grams dried apricots, chopped
240 grams raisins or sultanas
1 orange, zested
120 grams plain flour
120 grams sugar
120 grams bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated ginger or to taste
Pinch grated nutmeg
1 egg, beaten
140 millilitres milk
Grease a 3-pint 1 litre pudding basin. Mix all the ingredients together, except the egg and milk. Add the beaten egg and milk and mix well.
Put the mixture in the basin, cover with tin foil or a cloth, and put the basin in a pan with water half-way up the sides of the basin. Bring the water to a boil, put on a tight-fitting lid, and simmer for 3 hours, remembering to top up with add more boiling water now and then.
Serve with cream or custard with a little warmed syrup over the top
