Dinkum Pudding

One large cupful of self-raising flour, 1 cupful of sugar, 1 cupful dry breadcrumbs, 1 cupful beef suet (well chopped), 1 cupful of sultanas or mixed fruits, a little shredded lemon peel, 1 cupful of boiling water, a small teaspoonful of bicarbonate of soda.
Mix the dry ingredients together, then add the boiling water with the soda dissolved in it. Put into basin or pudding cloth, and boil well. If double the quantity is used, it can be made into two puddings, which can be boiled together. One of them can be hung up and if put into boiling water will take only 15 minutes to reheat.
