390 calories per serving

ingredients

serves 6
450 ml (3/4 pint) milk
150 g (5 oz) semolina
3 day old bread rolls
25 g (1 oz) butter
2 eggs
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
25 g (1 oz) sachet vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
450 ml (1 lb) plums
4 tablespoons breadcrumbs

method

1. Heat the milk in a saucepan, stir in the semolina, cook gently to allow the semolina to swell and then leave it to cool.

2. Grate the crusts off the rolls. Dice the remaining bread and fry it in the butter, then transfer the bread to a bowl. Beat the eggs with the salt, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla sugar and lemon rind and pour the mixture over the bread.

3. Wash, stone and dice the plums and stir them into the bread with the cool semolina. Stir in sufficient breadcrumbs for the mixture to form a ball. Bring plenty of salted water to the boil in a large saucepan.

4. Shape the plum mixture into a dumpling, place on a tea towel and knot the corners over the dumpling. Suspend the dumpling from the handle of a wooden spoon in the water, making sure that it is above the base of the pan.

5. Boil gently for 40 minutes.

Serve with: custard.
