I took this pudding as a contribution to a kitchen supper. Everyone loved it. I added half the sugar suggested and it would probably be OK with none. I cooked it just before leaving home, so it never really got cold, but it was warmed up in the bottom of the aga while we ate the main course and I took ready made good custard to pour over. Very easy, very tasty.
