    1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
    2. Beat the eggs with the juice and stir it into the dry mixture.

    4. Spoon the mixture into a pudding basin, cover with doubled greaseproof paper and tie with a string or rubber bands.
    5. Put the basin in a deep pan, pour in water to halfway up the bowl, cover the pan tightly and simmer for 4-5 hours, checking the water level periodically.
    6. Remove basin from the pot, discard the greaseproof paper and cover it with new. Allow to cool, then store in a cool larder.
