Pour into a greased 2 lb pudding mold and steam (almost submerged) in boiling water for an hour and a half. Serve with lemon sauce (see recipe). Pudding can also be flamed prior to serving. To flame pudding, warm 1/4 cup of brandy. Make a small depression in the top of the pudding and pour brandy over it. Lite with a match.
