Pour the milk into a dish, add the sugar, salt and ginger to taste and bake in a hot oven until the mixture has thickened.

Add sugar, salt and ginger to the milk and pour into a jug or a tall container.
Cover it and put it to stand in a saucepan of water. Bring the water to the boil and allow the mixture to thicken slowly in this heat.

The names given to this pudding and the methods of preparing it varied considerably in different districts. Similar in consistency to egg custard, it was eaten quite regularly in many areas. Pwdin llo bach (calf pudding) was a common name given to it in the counties of Denbigh and Merioneth, but it was known as pwdin llaeth tor in Anglesey.
