Alternating, add the flour and milk until the mixture is smooth and thick.

Add the eggs one by one, beating well after each addition.

Add the baking soda and salt and beat well.

Pour the mixture into your prepared baking dish and bake for 30-45 minutes until the pudding is dark and baked through (a skewer inserted should come out clean).

In a small sauce pan, heat the syrup ingredients and cook until all the sugar has dissolved.

Pour the syrup over the cooked pudding and allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving with custard.
