2.Stir in eggs, sifted dry ingredients and rum.
3.Grease 2-litre (8-cup) pudding steamer; spoon mixture into steamer. Top with pleated baking paper and foil (to allow pudding to expand as it cooks); secure with kitchen string or lid.
4.Place pudding in large boiler with enough boiling water to come halfway up side of steamer. Cover with tight-fitting lid, boil for 4 hours, replenishing water as necessary to maintain level. Stand pudding 10 minutes before turning onto plate; serve with cream, if desired.
