GOLDEN SYRUP PUDDING

(1). 1/2 lb. of golden syrup, 1 teacupful of sago, 1 lb. of fine wheatmeal, 1/2 pint of milk, 3 eggs, 2 oz. of citron peel. Soak the sago with the boiling milk until quite soft, adding a little water, if necessary; mix it with the meal and golden syrup into a fairly thick batter; beat up the eggs and mix them well with the other ingredients. Butter a mould, cut and arrange the citron in the bottom of it into a star, pour in the batter, tie a cloth over it, and steam the pudding for 3 hours.
