Method

 
Mix all ingredients well, adding a little milk if mixture is too dry. Turn into a greased pudding basin or 6 individual moulds. Cover with greased foil and secure with a string. Steam for 3 hours in a tightly covered saucepan of boiling water that comes halfway up the sides of the pudding basin. If using individual moulds, cook in a shallow saucepan of water coming halfway up the sides and reduce cooking time to 1 1/2 hours. BRANDY SAUCE: Cream sugar and butter. Add egg yolks and cream and beat well. Mixture may curdle, but will become smooth when cooked. Place in top of double boiler and cook over boiling water, stirring constantly until thickened. Do not boil. Stir in brandy and serve hot or cold.
