1 pkt gingerbread cake mix
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sultanas
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Method: Drain plums and reserve syrup for sauce. Remove stones from plums and cut into pieces. Prepare cake mix as per packet, add salt and plum pieces. Stir in sultanas and walnuts. Pour into 6 cup cake tin (8" square). Bake uncovered at 370°F about 1 hour. Loosen edges immediately and unmould onto serving plate. (Can be made ahead and reheated when needed.)
Plum Sauce: Combine 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tbs cornflour; gradually add plum syrup. Add enough water to make up to 1.1/2 cups altogether. Cook over medium heat, stirring continually until it boils and thickens. Cook 1 min. Add 1 tbs lemon juice. (Can also be warmed later.)
Serve sauce warm over pudding slices, also serve thin cream.
