200 grams fresh bread crumbs

200 grams butter
50 grams refined flour

1/2  cup rum
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and cloves
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

100 grams chopped sultanas
100 grams mixed peel
½ teaspoon salt
100 grams sugar
Cream the butter and sugar together then add the eggs and mix well. Gradually add all the other ingredients and mix well. Grease a Pudding Mould or any suitable bowl with butter. Pour the pudding mixture into it then steam the pudding for about 1 hour on low heat till it is firm to touch

Hi Bridget,

I love plum cakes sold in Indian bakeries. I have been looking for a recipe from christmas time. I have a curious question. why is this called plum cake when it doesn't have plums in it? All the Indian style plum cake recipes don't have plums in it.. so I'm curious about the origin of this cake.. If you know, could you please let me know.

Well, plums or not, I love this cake and I'm planning to make it soon. Thanks for the recipe!
