Have just tried making a lumberjack pudding. I am familiar with the cake which I believe is an American cake made with dates. It is just delicious if you have never made one, the pudding was even more delicious served warm with a dash of fresh cream.
This pudding has
200g dates chopped. Topping
1 tspn bicarbonate of soda 75g unsalted butter
125g butter 80g soft brown sugar
230g caster sugar. 80 ml milk
1 egg 60g shredded coconut
2 Granny Smith apples grated
125 g plain flour
60 g sr flour
Heat dates with water , bring to the boil – when cool add soda of bi carb
Cream together butter and sugar, add egg, fold in date mixture and flours
Place into a well greased oven dish 20 x 30 cm
Meanwhile place all the topping ingredients in a saucepan and heat, until butter has melted.
Bake in an oven for approximately 40 minutes at 165c . When 15 mins are up add topping to pudding and continue baking.
