Grease a 1 liter pudding basin.
Mix together the flour, salt, suet and sugar.
Make a well in the centre and the egg and enough milk to make a soft dropping consistency.
Place in the pudding basin and smooth the top.
Cover with cling film (the type suitable for use in microwave ovens).
Steam for 1 hour, then top up the appliance with a further 500 ml cold water, reset the timer and steam for a further 30 minutes.
Turn out and serve hot with jam, golden syrup or cooked fruit.
Note: The pudding basin must not obstruct the steam vent holes on the lid or prevent the lid fitting securely.
