  1. Grease a pudding bowl. Spread the jam in the base of the bowl.
  2. Cream the butter and the sugar.
  3. Add the egg beaten well and mix until smooth.
  4. Sift the flour and the baking powder and add it inches.
  5. Stir in the milk too and mix well. Pour this mixture gently over the jam in the bowl.
  6. Cover and seal the bowl with foil and steam in pan filled with 2 cups of boiling water for an hour.
  7. Check periodically to see that the water at the base has not dried up and top with boiling water if required.
