Grandma's Ginger Pudding ...

Ginger pudding is my most treasured recipe, you had to leave enough space for this wonderful easy pudding, served after a sonday roast, made with love by my grandmother. She passed it down the line to my mother, who passed it down to me. Now I want to share it with you.

1 tablespoon butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon apricot jam
Cream together
Mix in a seperate bowl
1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon ginger powder
Pour 1 cup of milk and add 1 teaspoon of bicard (baking soda) to it and stir. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar ( I raised my eyebrows too at the vinegar but it works)
Now mix everything together and pour into a pyrex baking dish after you sprayed it with non stick spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 mins. remove from the oven and pour over the following sauce
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 sugar
Bring it to the "boil" pour over hot pudding and return to the oven for 5 mins, allowing the sauce to soak in. Serve warm with ice cream, cream or custard.

This is a true treasure and you will not be disappointed I promise you
Will add pic soon
