Dumplings for pudding? Now that's a traditional dessert worth bringing back
1. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the grated apple and carrot. Dissolve the treacle in 1 tablespoon of hot water and add to the mixture and the rum, if using. Add enough milk to bind the mixture to a soft consistency - be careful not to make it too soft.
2. Transfer the mixture into a pudding cloth and boil for 3 hours. Alternatively, put the mixture into a greased, 1.7 litre (3pint) pudding basin, cover securely and steam for 3 hours. Turn out and serve with custard.
