Heat the butter or margarine, sugar and apricot jam, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Whisk the egg and milk together and stir the mixture into the butter mixture. Sift together the dry ingredients and fold into the sugar mixture, mixing until smooth. Add the lemon juice. Bring the syrup to the boil and spoon the pudding batter into the boiling syrup. Cover and place the pot over medium-hot coals. Place a few coals on top of the lid and cook for 1 hour. Alternatively bake the pudding in the oven at 180º C. Heat the evaporated milk and serve with the pudding.
