  Self-raising flour 4 Ounce (Self-Rising, 1 Scant Cup, 100 Gram)
  Semolina 4 Ounce (1/2 Cup / 100 Gram)
  Brown sugar 2 Ounce (1/3 Cup / 50 Gram)
  Cooking fat 2 Ounce (1/4 Cup, 50 Gram,, Shortening)
  Soda bicarbonate 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Milk 1 Tablespoon (15 Milliliter)
  Dark corn syrup 15 Milliliter (Golden, 1 Tablespoon)
  Rum 15 Milliliter (1 Tablespoon)
  Dark corn syrup 60 Milliliter
  Water 3 Fluid Ounce (5 Tablespoon, 75 Milliliter)
  Golden raisins 4 Ounce (Sultanas, 3/4 Cup, 100 Gram)
  Rum 45 Milliliter (3 Tablespoon)
  Cream 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Mix together the flour, semolina, sugar and fat.
Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) in the milk and stir in the syrup and rum. Add this to the dry ingredients. The mixture should be soft enough to drop off a spoon easily. Add more milk if necessary to obtain the correct consistency.
Grease a 1 1/2 pt pudding basin (flat-bottom bowl) and pour in the mixture. Cover and cook for 6 minutes. Let it stand for 3 minutes.
To make the sauce, place all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and cook, covered, for 4 minutes until the sultanas (golden raisins) plump up.
Turn the pudding out onto a serving plate and serve with the sauce and cream.
