Iona's Pudding

As Autumn arrives with shades of russet and copper, I crave comfort food. And, comfort food for me often is sweet, but must contain spices. If it contains fruit even better.
Two of my favourite sweet treats are Eve's Pudding and Gingerbread (or parkin, or as it's known in our house Campervan Cake as it is in The Campervan Cookbook by Martin Dorey and now calls it that). So it seemed logical to combine them.


(Ian also named this)

Iona's Pudding.

Prepare an 18cm square baking tin by lining with buttered greaseproof paper. Meanwhile melt the butter, sugar and treacle in a saucepan over gentle heat. Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Add the oatmeal and spices. Mix well then add the treacle mixture along with a well-beaten egg and milk. Stir until completely blended then pour into the baking tin and bake in an oven pre-heated to 190°C for about 45 minutes.
