Thank you to Jo at the excellent Screaming Carrot for this recipe.
8oz veg suet
Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a different bowl blend all liquids and the soya flour mixture, pour over the dry ingredients. Stir all together very thoroughly. If after you have done this the mixture seems a bit dry add some more stout until you get it to a dropping consistency. Cover and leave overnight.
Next day, grease the pudding basins, fill to the top with mixture and cover securely. Steam for 8 hours.
When ready to eat steam for 2 hours and serve.
Makes approx 2 pints.
