Recipe Tips

  • To ensure that this sago plum pudding is gluten-free, make sure you buy some gluten-free cornflakes.
  • If you do not have a pudding steamer, you can use a ceramic bowl instead. Simply cover tightly with foil so that moisture will not get in.
  • Feel free to change the type of jam that you use in the recipe. For example, an apricot jam will work just as well as the raspberry jam.
  • Tapioca pearls are an excellent substitution for sago if you are unable to get your hands on any.
