    Altered ingredient amounts. I had no cream so just used milk.. I also didn't have any lemons or peel, so I added cinnamon and nutmeg instead.  -  16 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)


    Made it healthier. I used single cream instead of whipping cream and found that the pudding was still deliciously rich and moist  -  15 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK | Ireland)
